Boswell's Books



The narrow shopfront of Boswell's Books, Ashgrove's long-standing secondhand book shop belies the rich bounty of books packed into the long narrow corridors within.

With every genre under the sun, featuring whole series of authors and classics as well as a host of early editions, this place is an Aladdin’s cave for the bibliophile. Spike Milligan annuals, the first edition of the Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew series, the entire collection of Footrot Flats, war volumes, encyclopaedias, gardening, the arts, biographies and the odd set of Roman coins are but a few of the offerings and the well read helpful owner is ready to help the buyer with whatever they may seek.
