Welcome to Newport Vintage Books.  We hope you will take the opportunity to browse through our extensive updates.  We hope you enjoy the new look of our website, and the time & effort we've taken to offer you not only vintage material, but also high quality listings and our collector galleries providing you with much information and more to come.


Our website has been designed to offer our viewers a synergy between vintage books, classic movies and old time radio broadcasts.  Many mystery readers may be familiar with well known detective and crime fiction characters such as Philo Vance, Bulldog Drummond & Fu Manchu, and not be aware that each had counterparts on the silver screen.  Likewise, many classic film enthusiasts may happily recall the films of Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto and Arsene Lupin without being familiar with the mystery novels from which they originated.  Similarly, most Tarzan fans are familiar with the several films starring such actors as Johnny Weismuller, Buster Crabbe, Lex Barker & Gordon Scott, and they may even know a few of the 24 Tarzan novels written by Edgar Rice Burroughs -- and yet be unfamiliar with the old time radio broadcasts of Tarzan.  With our growing old time radio archives, expanding author bibliographies and our soon to be launched classic cinema online filmographies we hope to help share and guide our visitors through the wonderful world of early 20th century American entertainment and popular culture.
