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

It’s quite a political change-over with lots of books on recent HISTORY, POLITICS and TERRORISM.

We also have an unusually large section on CRICKET, a great selection of TRANSPORT books and almost a bay of THEOLOGY.
