Closure of our shop on Charing Cross Road.

It is with much regret that we announce the closure of our shop on Charing Cross Road with immediate effect.

We had intended signing up for another term from March 24th but the sudden full impact of the Coronavirus persuaded us to take this opportunity to effect an orderly retreat from the Charing Cross Road after 37 years trading there, and our decision brings to an end over 150 years of the Francis Edwards presence in London.

Francis Edwards will continue to trade in Hay-on-Wye at the Old Cinema as well as exhibit at book fairs, send out their catalogues, and offer their books for sale on-line.

Quinto will for the time being only trade on the internet: details to follow soon.

Little did we know when we re-opened the basement at 2 pm on March 3rd, after the monthly stock change-over that this would be the last time this Charing Cross Road ceremony would take place.

We would like to thank everyone for supporting us over the years!
