23.05.13. Long established Treasure Chest Books in Felixstowe has just been acquired by Martin Bott Bookdealers of Bolton, one of the leading dealers in transport & industrial history books. The shop continues as before with its existing staff and a very wide range of quality stock but with an enlarged transport section. To make room for more new stock a HALF PRICE SALE is now on for shop visitors covering various subject areas - full details on the shop's new website. Add a comment

We consider a
'shop' to be any business with a significant stock of secondhand
or collectable books, that welcomes visitors at advertised times,
or by prior appointment. This includes permanent units in antique
markets, private bookrooms, and weekly market stalls. Entries in
the Bookshop Guide are free, so why not take the opportunity
add your shop now.
the most (in)famous bookshop guide was produced by Drif
and old copies continue to delight customers and enrage many in
the book trade. Drif reviewed the owners as much as their shops
or stock and revelled in their eccentricities.
In the spirit
of Driff we invite you to review
the nation's bookshops and tell us which you think are the good,
the bad and the ugly.
