The Chaucer Head Bookshop, Stratford upon Avon

 

Beautiful books

Our on-line listings can be browsed and searched for by title, author, keyword or catalogue by clicking on the "Search & Buy our Books" link on the right. Only a small proportion (approximately 5,000 of 15,000 plus) of our books are listed on-line, so a visit to the actual, real, bricks and mortar shop is always recommended.

Being in Stratford upon Avon, we always try to have a range of Shakespeare's works, Shakespeareana and Shakespearean criticism.

We have sections on local history and topography; Stratford on Avon, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. We have topographical sections for England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Other "departments" include: History, Literary Biography, Drama, Theatrical History, Natural History, Country Lore, Military History, Transport (Motor Transport, Steam and other Railways, Air Transport), Children's Books (including some of the classic titles of Children's literature), Modern First Editions and other collectable books .... the list goes on. To give a flavour I have attached below a list of subject areas currently listed as categories in our book inventory database. Follow the link on the right navigation bar...

We also have a wide selection English language and translations of classic literature (Austen, the Brontës, Dickens, Hardy, Henty, Henry James, Kipling, Scott, Bernard Shaw, Robert Louis Stevenson, Spenser, Thackeray, Trollope, and on to Zola. Twentieth and twenty first century literature is equally well represented, from Douglas Adams through to Virginia Woolf - in short, all the great authors.
