Two bookseller labels from York, Pa.

I have been spending much of the day sorting through boxes of books, and so far I have stumbled upon two different bookseller labels1 from former York County businesses.

On the left is a label for The Regal Store. It was affixed to a 1925 hardcover edition of "Red Rock" by Thomas Nelson Page.

On the right is a label for The Book Shop at 20 South Beaver Street in York. It was affixed to the inside front cover of a 1945 edition of "Arch of Triumph" by Erich Maria Remarque.

I'm not familiar with either of these former stores. Can anyone shed any light?
