Horncastle Bookseller for 20 years, now with two shops turned into one

"Your second-hand bookseller is second to none in the worth of the treasures he dispenses." Leigh Hunt (1784-1859).


"Buy good books, and read them; the best books are the commonest, and the last editions are always the best, if the editors are not blockheads." Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694-1773). The Letters of the Earl of Chesterfield to His Son.


"For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them. I know they are as lively, and as vigorously productive, as those fabulous dragon's teeth; and being sown up and down, may chance to spring up armed men." John Milton (1608-1674). Areopagitica: a Speech for the Liberty of Unlicensed Printing to the Parliament of England .


"For I bless God in the honey of the sugar-cane and the milk of the cocoa
For I bless God in the libraries of the learned and for all the booksellers of the world"
Christopher Smart (1722-1771) Jubilate Agno.
