We are moving rapidly towards the e-book, so it is therefore refreshing to experience the atmosphere evoked by the rows and rows of old volumes. There is no real substitute for locating those sought after titles, to see them with your own eyes, handle the old bindings, admire the wonderful artistic dustjackets, the relics of a bygone age.

The fourth room contains cookery books, a mind, body and spirit section, first editions, collecting, old fiction and biography.
