The Franklin Bookstore was started by Robert & Ruth Lynn in 1996 in Humboldt, Tennessee on Main Street. Robert Lynn had been collecting historical periodicals for over 20 year’s prior, at first starting out as a hobby. Always a history buff, he and Ruth retired to Tennessee to open the business of selling and dealing with rare books, magazines and newspapers. Many items were acquired from other rare books dealers from across the country.
The Franklin Bookstore continues with his son Daniel Lynn, Regina Lynn and employees. Mindful to keep the high ethical business examples that Dad established, we feel honored to be associated with such a virtual history of the printed word, inherently beautiful and fascinating artifacts of our cultural past. Every item we offer is guaranteed to be absolutely genuine and as described.
