Half price sale at Quinto!

Today we will turn our basement into a proper ‘bargain basement’. From 2pm on Tuesday 3 March all our Quinto stock will be half the marked price!

It will be a full ‘change-over’ with thousands of new books on our shelves. The stock is particularly strong on ART and ARCHITECTURE, with nice sections on antiques and ceramics, and a good bay with artist monographs.

Half of the change-over stock consists of HISTORY, TRAVEL and MILITARY, including several bays on WW2 and a lot of NAVAL & MILITARY.

It’s a good one for readers of CRIME FICTION as well and if you’re into NATURAL HISTORY this will definitely be your month!

We have also re-priced a good chunk of our Francis Edwards titles. Most of these now sell for half the original price.

Quinto restock and Sale at Francis Edwards

IMAG1356Today (Tuesday 3 February) at 2pm we will re-open our basement with completely new stock. It’s an eclectic mix of subjects with a lot of HISTORY, LITERATURE and plenty of wonderful ART and ARCHITECTURE books.

We have an outstanding CLASSICS section, including shelves and shelves of the ever popular LOEB CLASSICS.

A lot of TRAVEL books as well, with a particular focus on RUSSIA and THE FAR EAST.

We’re very proud of the extensive collection of PHILOSOPHY titles: Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and a great number of obscure Russian thinkers…

Also worth mentioning are the many books we have on ISLAM, and at least one colleague got quite excited about a shelf or so of books on cake decoration…

IMAG1352 (2)If a complete change of stock at Quinto doesn’t give you enough incentive to visit the shop, there is also a massive sale on at Francis Edwards!

Hundreds of books have been re-priced this month at Francis Edwards. Most of them sell for about half the original price and real bargains can be found. Some of the books have been in our shop for a while, but we also had a delivery of over 200 books from our shop in Hay-on-Wye and a lot of stock hasn’t been on our shelves before.

We look forward to seeing you!

All the best from Quinto and Francis Edwards Booksellers!

December change-over

IMAG1247Our basement has reopened with completely new stock!

On our shelves this month we have a fantastic selection of books from the collection of the author and commentator David Pryce-Jones. Pryce-Jones is best known for his works about the Arab world and his collection of books represents this interest.

We also have an incredible section with books on MUSIC, with a focus on opera and classical composers. There probably isn’t a book published on Puccini that we don’t have!

There are good sections on LITERATURE, ART and NATURAL HISTORY and our SCIENCE section has some interesting titles about astronomy and space travel!

Also worth mentioning are our CHILDREN’S books and as usual there will be a good chunk of HISTORY and TRAVEL.

And lots more of course. Come and have a look at 72 Charing Cross Road!

All the best,
Quinto Bookshop
