David Mason Books has just celebrated our 40th anniversary in business. We are now located at 366 ADELAIDE STREET WEST, in Suites LL04 and LL05, M5V 1R9, in The Capital Building. This is on the north side of Adelaide about 200 yards from Spadina Ave. Adelaide being a one-way street east, must be entered from Spadina or further west. There is ample parking both in lots and on the street. Our History and our Specialties can be viewed using the appropriate links.

If you are coming to the shop to examine/purchase a book you saw online, please call ahead to confirm, as some items are stored offsite. When placing an order please have the book or item number at hand along with author and title if available.
