How many stores have sepia portraits of their founding fathers on display? How many find space for a grandfather clock?
Is there any other bookshop anywhere in the world which has such splendid stained glass?
Higgenbotham's is cavernous, and just a touch chaotic. But not quite as antediluvian as I had expected. Thought quite how it manages to survive, I'm not sure. I've heard that it does a good trade in school textbooks.
Long may its shelves remain stocked!
