Welcome to The Vintage Book Shelf.

I always loved browsing secondhand book shops, especially thoses at the English seaside tucked somewhere between the rock shop and the chandlers. Often presided over by true eccentrics with a real love, and knowledge, of the books they sold those shops were absolute treasure troves.

 Do you remember them?

The shops with  shelves and cardboard boxes crammed full of books outside the door on sunny days. They often had a bell that rang as you opened the door...

Sadly most of those wonderful shops have now disappeared but we have some really lovely vintage books for you to browse through here at The Vintage Book Shelf. Don't just take make word for it, do take a look and enjoy.
