About Our Bookshop

Real live bookshop

The shop is now closed while we are in lockdown.  WE ARE STILL SHIPPING WORLDWIDE and all we post out daily.  We mostly use UPS for our expedited deliveries.

(We are usually open to the public Monday to Saturday 10.30 to 17.30 GMT, and most Sundays 11 to 5. - If you find yourself in Chiswick in West London, do come in and browse)




In an effort to provide you with some certainty about receiving your books quickly, we are subsidising deliveries for Domestic sales and using faster services.

Please select our UPS - UK Expedited service, especially if you require a tracked service (we can send 1st class signed if you prefer).

Our Standard UK service is either Royal Mail or Hermes and we are currently upgrading everything to asure swifter delivery, but local conditions vary wildly so please be patient with us as we are keen to continue to offer a free delivery option.


We offer free UK shipping on all orders, and are now usng Royal Mail's scanned parcel service - will also deliver locally where feasible.  Internationally we send books Priority Mail, DPD for Europe, or the very efficient USPS Smartmail service in the US, and also have a range of well priced courier options available.  If you are unsure at all, please contact us and we'll be happy to let you know the current status and options available.
