A happy New Year to you all!

DSCN0165At Quinto Bookshop we have started the New Year with a clean slate and re-opened our basement with a complete change of stock.

We have started 2016 with something unusual (for us): a large selection of SCIENCE books.

 

 

Anything from POPULAR SCIENCE to ASTRONOMY, MATHS, PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, EVOLUTION and biographies of many of the famous scientists. There are quite a few antiquarian books mixed in.

Several shelves of Science books have been added to Francis Edwards as well, with titles such as

THE PHILOSOPHY OF MESMERISM AND ELECTRICAL PSYCHOLOGY (1876)
AN EPTOME OF EXPERIMENTAL CHEMISTRY (1808)
BLOWPIPE ANALYSIS (1892)
WONDERS OF ACOUSTICS; Or, the Phenomena of Sound (1870)  

Other major subjects are THEOLOGY and, like last month, SCI-FI paperbacks.

We recently bought a lot of books from the late Wordsworth scholar Prof. Alan G. Hill and many of these will be for sale at Quinto from tomorrow.

Like usual you can expect a fair bit of HISTORY and TRAVEL – including several shelves of WW2 and British Topography (Yorkshire).

We look forward to seeing you!
