[Burton Lysecki Books]


Copyright Winnipeg Free Press 2004

In The Used Book Lover's Guide to Canada (Book Hunter Press, 1999) authors David S. and Susan Siegel say the following about Burton Lysecki Books:

One has to only speak to the owner of this shop for a few moments to realize that he is in love with books. But even if we did not have that opportunity, walking around his shop would reveal that secret. The shop is a joy to visit. Books of every category are displayed in sufficient quantity to keep one's eyes peeled to the shelves that hold the particular subject areas that might be of interest. Strong in Canadiana as well as history, but we had problems finding any areas that were not attractively represented. We have observed many stores over the years that displayed complete sets of the writings of distinguished authors; none in our memory carried quite as many sets as are on display here.
