A large and varied selection of books

We sell a mixture of secondhand and new books. The new books are mostly at reduced prices, in most cases not more than half the publisher's price. The total number of titles we stock is far greater than you will find in the normal high street bookshop. Almost all subjects are covered.

We keep our prices very reasonable and therefore have a fast turnover with new stock arriving almost daily. We can post books for customers, either in the UK or overseas.

The groundfloor includes many of the more popular sections, including the subjects shown on the left of this page. There is also the Collectors Bookroom containing the more valuable and antiquarian books.

We also stock a wide range of quality greetings cards, book related gifts, and indoor games.

The coffee machine and customer toilets are also on the groundfloor.

The first floor houses many of the more specialised subjects. These are shown on the left of this page. There is also a seating area with comfortable sofas.

The books are NOT listed on the internet

With the exception of the limited number of books listed on this site, the books in the shop are NOT listed on the internet.

While the internet can be very useful when searching for a particular title, it is no substitute for browsing a large and varied stock of real books. We believe that a large proportion of books bought in our shop were not known to the buyers before they found then here.

History of Science, Medicine & Technology

We hold a specialised stock in these fields only some of which is on display in the shop.
