Antiquarian, Second-Hand and New Books. Bought & Sold!

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 can order (often for next day collection) any title not in stock.

Personal callers are always welcome or a selection of our stock can be browsed, on-line, by pressing here.

We can arrange for “special order” bespoke Picture Framing and also picture & print restoration and bookbinding services.

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! Inside the shop there is also a display of antique dolls from Ann Westwood’s private collection.

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.
