It is with sadness that we learn of the death of Anne Powell-Jones, who passed away on 16th March 2019.

Anne was the driving force behind this Bookshop for 40 years and will be remembered fondly by many of our long-term customers. You will, we are sure, wish to join with us in expressing commiserations to Anne’s family.

A memorial service will take place at St. James the Great Church, Fulbrook, West Oxon. on Friday 10th May at 2.00pm, which customers are welcome to attend. Anne’s son Henry has asked that anyone planning to be there should contact him first so that he may monitor numbers. He can be reached by e-mail at

Welcome to The Classics Bookshop

We specialise in second hand and antiquarian Latin and Greek Classics. Our stock of classics books includes Latin and Greek language, literature, philosophy, philology, history, archaeology and art. We also have some books on papyrology and epigraphy.

We are now solely an internet and mail order business, though telephone or email enquiries are always welcome, and we will do our best to help.

From time to time we purchase libraries and collections of Classics books.
