George Bayntun is one of the world’s most famous bookshops. The shop is located in an imposing listed building in the centre of Bath, originally the Post Office sorting office, and the binders still work at the benches originally used to sort the mail. The bookshop specialises in fine bindings, both old and new, first and illustrated editions, with an emphasis on English literature, and familiar and unusual books, all in the best possible condition. Visitors are invited to browse through George Bayntun’s stock of many thousands of books and prints, spread over three floors. Some are catalogued and listed online, whilst many more can only be found by searching the shelves.
