May change-over

We have reopened our basement with 1000’s of new books.

Part of this month’s stock comes from the library of Anthony Lejeune, a much respected writer, editor and literary critic who died last year at the age of 89. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Lejeune)

Lejeune clearly had a great taste for books: from first editions Wodehouse and Edgar Rice Burroughs to vintage crime and horror stories. Many more will be shelved in the next few months, both in Quinto and Francis Edwards.

In addition to Lejeune’s library we had a few other large buys consisting of literature and the performing arts: books about music from the rock-n-roll and football writer Paolo Hewitt, as well as large sections on classical music and opera.

The main subjects this month are:

Fiction
Poetry
Plays
Shakespeare
Folio Society
LGTBQ
Esoteric
Ancient History
Travel
Naval & Maritime
Cookery

… and much more.

August stock

We have have re-opened our basement with completely new stock.

Several of the books in this month’s change-over are from the library of Patrick Bridgwater, specialist in Gothic literature and writer of books such as ‘De Quincy’s Gothic Masquerade’, ‘Kafka, Gothic and Fairytale’ and the Penguin anthology ‘Twentieth-century German Verse’.

No surprise his library includes many Gothic marvels and some great and hard-to-find literary criticism.

We also have a large section of art books and plenty of history, travel, sports (especially cricket), social sciences and esoterica.

We look forward to seeing you!

July stock: music and Shakespeare

Tuesday the 3rd of July: we have re-opened our basement with entirely new stock.

Amongst the books on our shelves are two collections we are very proud of:

 

We have bought 100’s of books from the music journalist and writer Paolo Hewitt, who wrote biographies about Paul Weller, Steve Marriott and others, and is a regular contributor to The Guardian newspaper.

 

We also purchased a large collection from the late Michael Bogdanov (1938-2017), notorious theatre director and founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company, whose 1980 production of The Romans in Britain led to an infamous obscenity trial.

As usual there is a lot of travel, literature and history on our shelves.

Other main subjects for July are:

Eastern religion (mainly Buddhism)
Judaica
Esoteric

Sports & pastimes
Natural History
