Staniland (Booksellers) was established in 1972. We occupy a small shop in the centre of a pretty market town in England's smallest county. We have two public rooms and stock antiquarian and modern books, mostly literature, philosophy, music, history, classics, architecture, applied arts, theology and topography. We have a good range of library sets in cloth and leather and, occasionally, fine bindings. We are members of the P.B.F.A., the largest booksellers' organisation in the U.K. The shop is usually open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; usually closed on Mondays and Tuesdays; appointments to view out of hours can almost always be made at a customer's convenience. Please telephone before setting out if you are travelling far as I cannot always get cover if attending an auction. We are always pleased to receive offers of books for sale.
