Exciting news for those who can’t visit the shop in person!

Having browsed the shelves on this website, perhaps you want to see some of the books in a little more detail? Pick them up and look inside? Find out the price? Ask about titles you don’t see on the shelves?

Now you can direct your own assistant to do just that – by video link! Available on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, when the shop is closed to the general public but is open just for you!

Please see the BROWSING BY VIDEO page for details.

Please note – this is a brand new service and is very much at the test stage. All feedback welcome and please bear with us if there are technical hitches!
