Rabelais is located in the North Dam Mill in Biddeford, just 20 minutes south of Portland. The mill space houses our large collection of rare, used and new food and drink books. Please note that we are inside the mill with many other businesses, and with no separate door or exterior sign for us. Just enter the North Dam Mill at the Main Entrance. We're just off the lobby.


Now open by appointment or chance only. We are often in the shop, hard at work researching, cataloguing, and selling the best rare printed and manuscript materials we can find. To make an appointment, please send us an email at
