Quinto Bookshop & Francis Edwards

    The negative side of shopping for second-hand books can be that you don’t always find the thing you’re after. Quinto Books solves this problem by providing a two-in-one destination, combining its offering power with Francis Antiquarian Booksellers. Quinto occupies the basement level and focuses its selection on general second-hand books on a number of subjects, with Francis Edwards occupying the shop front on the ground floor and specializing in fine quality antiquarian books. Combined, with an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly staff, it’s a sure bet you’ll find something of interest. Take note: the first Thursday of the month is the best day to visit as both upstairs and downstairs get new stock arrivals on Thursdays, and Quinto is completely re-stocked at the start of each month.Show lessRead more
