|Edinburgh Books has been a landmark for book lovers for more than twenty years. Formerly known as West Port Books, it was saved by the skin of its teeth from becoming yet another café in 2006 by William Lytle.
This off-beat Edinburgh bookshop has a huge, wide ranging stock of second-hand and antiquarian books: just when you think you’ve scanned every shelf you find the stairs and realise there are four rooms in the basement. For the reader, there is a large stock of fiction and non-fiction; for the collector, a sizeable number of intriguing titles.
