Plurabelle Books started about 20 years ago, when an illustrious academic career, (Dr phil habil) came to an end with a single term professorial appointment in Siegen (Germany). In Cambridge the local car boot sales seemed to supply books at a good rate, and the charity shops held a few surprises too. Then Professor Leonard Forster, moving house, declined my suggestion of a research project on his collection of 17th century books, but offered me the remainder of his library. Plurabelle was born, and academic aspirations were laid to rest with little regret.
The name will remind some of Finnegans Wake by James Joyce, where Anna Livia Plurabelle has a firm place. The name goes back to the time when we tried to become a supplier of used books for the English Studies community all over Europe. Today we have become almost omnivorous, and no subject, and only a few languages, will send us back. Like the ancient sophists, we have knowledge about everything in stock. And sometimes we even work like a book disposal specialist, and we have helped quite a few Librarians to clear the space under the desk or the entire basement.
We occupy a warehouse right next to the railway line. Visitors are very welcome, be it to save on postage, to get to know us, or to spend time with our books on wooden shelves, distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. We have many unique and wonderful books at very reasonable prices, and some rare items that do not find their way to our Internet list. Best time to call is between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. Bicycle parking available. We also have a few shelves of books for children. Next door St Barnabas Press with great artwork.
