  • Some information:

    George Bayntun is a world famous book shop and bindery located in an imposing listed building less than 50 yards from the train station in the centre of Bath. Little inside the shop has changed since 1938, at which time most of the furniture was already antique. Visitors are invited to browse through our stock of many thousands of books and prints, spread over three floors. We specialise in fine bindings, English novelists, children's and illustrated books in fine and first editions. We also have an antiquarian section and an extensive second hand department. Some of our books are catalogued and listed online, whilst many more can only be found by searching our shelves.
