The Second Shelf
Gift Vouchers: Yes
Speciality: Books by women, First editions, Rare and antiquarian books

Rare books, first editions and rediscovered works by women.

Shop temporarily closed but open by email! Gift cards available (for digital and in-store purchases).

We are encouraging people to stay home to protect the more vulnerable members of our community, and hope to re-open when we know more about the coronavirus.

The way to buy books from us now is either to buy a gift card and shop when we alert you that we are ready, or just email us and say, WHAT DO YOU GOT? THIS IS MY MONEY. And we will send choices. It’s tailored and bespoke. And great. People like it.
