|John Sandoe started this shop in 1957. In 1989 the shop was sold to members of staff and it remains essentially the same - an independent literary bookshop with many regular customers.
On three floors of an eighteenth century building. Books crammed in everywhere, up the stairs and piled on tables.
In this limited space thye have about 25,000 books.
They will try to get any book at all, wherever published, even if out of print.
