The Petersfield Bookshop specialises in buying and selling Antiquarian and second-hand books, as well as antique maps and prints. We also sell new books and have an on-site bespoke picture framing workshop. We can arrange for picture and print restoration and (on-site) bookbinding services. Inside the shop there is a display of antique dolls from Ann Westwood's private collection. A special feature of the premises is a canopied forecourt where second-hand books can be bought – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
The Petersfield Bookshop was founded in 1918 by Dr Harry Roberts, an East End doctor who had helped set up the Panel Scheme (the predecessor of the National Health Service). In 1958, Frank Westwood bought the business and relocated it to Chapel Street. Sadly Frank passed away in January 2006 but the shop continues as a family business, with Frank's wife Ann and sons David and John being partners.
Postage Extra at Cost. Overseas Orders will be sent by Printed Paper Surface Mail unless otherwise instructed.
Personal callers welcome during shop opening hours or by appointment but PLEASE NOTE:-
Most books are on the shelves in the shop and might have already been sold "over the counter". We do our best to keep the computer database up to date, but callers are requested to check availability before making a special journey.
