Melville House Neversink Library


For the Lover of Understated Reads

Books of great praise from around the world can finally find themselves in the hands of a reader who would appreciate their value. Give the gift of something completely new this holiday season. 


"The Neversink Library champions books from around the world that have been overlooked, underappreciated, looked askance at, or foolishly ignored. They are issued in handsome, well-designed editions at reasonable prices in hopes of their passing from one reader to another—and further enriching our culture."
