Armchair Books

Edinburgh, Midlothian, United Kingdom

Armchair Books ekes out its intense and blustery existence on Edinburgh's hallowed West Port... Ancient home of booksellers. In view of the castle, above the Grassmarket, it bakes under the torrid Scottish sun. The dangers are manifold; our overburdened shelves groan like masts in a squall, our threadbare and quasi-oriental rugs may distractingly catch the eye or foot. Books in the window may spontaneously burst into flames, and the Managers must be kept locked in at all times... Sporadically under feeble but sinister attack by the government, we struggle under goad of fear, towards Beauty.

Loanhead, Midlothian, United Kingdom

Here at Literaticus we just love books. We collect books. We read books. We LOVE books. All books. We have been collecting books for a lifetime or two and in the interests of health and safety must now release some back into the world. Welcome to our bookshop! If there is a specific book you just cannot find but must have, do get in touch. We have a vast collection of very odd books, mainly unlisted, so you just never know! I am in the process of adding pictures to the listings so they will be here eventually! If you simply cannot wait, just drop me a line and I'll mail you what you need to see. It's no problem.
