Welcome to Bison Books!

Serendipity awaits you in our friendly shop, where we offer an eclectic, fresh collection of around 20,000 meticulously-curated antiquarian and good used books.

We have a long-established reputation of easygoing professionalism and maintain a refined selection of everything from first editions, fine bindings and antiquarian books, to Indigenous studies, literature, art, and classics, with new acquisitions daily.

We are located in the heart of downtown, in a bright space with lofty ceilings and towering windows which look out onto one of Winnipeg’s busiest pedestrian thoroughfares.

We are always purchasing good books. We seek out and pay a premium for, valuable books, including rare books, fine bindings, illustrated books, first editions, signed books, and more. We also offer book searches, acquisitions development consultations, appraisals, movie rentals, and mail orders.


The shop will be closed Monday for Louis Riel Day.

Sometimes an unassuming little brown leather book turns out to be packed with delightful engravings, executed in a charming style unburdened by perspective.

These are from “The Antient and Modern History of the Loyal Town of Rippon”, by Thomas Gent of York, c 1733.
