Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Bernard J Shapero’s interesting collection of antiquarian and out-of-print texts is enticingly displayed over four floors in these smart Mayfair premises. Specialisms here include travel (with a comprehensive collection of Baedeker guides), natural history, literature and colour-plate books. The shop’s newest department deals with books from and about Russia and there are also rare maps and atlases and monographs of early photography. The shop began in Grays Antiques Market in 1979 and moved to Notting Hill before settling here over a decade ago; the range, presentation and, above all, quality of its beautiful volumes are second to none. One for the serious collector – though by no means unapproachable to the rest of us.
