When is a Book a 'Vintage' Book?

As the name implies “Love Vintage Books” sells vintage books. But what is a vintage book?

If we mean the term “vintage” to refer to part of our childhood, the shop can be said to take the widest possible view of the term as it stocks books from the mid 19thC until the late 20thC and all these books were part of someone’s childhood at some stage.

In the media, the term is commonly associated with the 1950s and 1960s, those decades when the baby boomers were children. "Love Vintage Books" has many collectible and rare books from these decades.

Wine lovers associate the term “vintage” to mean quality with age.  Well, I like to think this description applies to all the books at "Love Vintage Books".
