Welcome to The Topsham Bookshop

Topsham Bookshop

We supply secondhand and out-of-print books. Paperback, hardback, modern and antiquarian.

The Topsham Bookshop is housed on three floors of a beautiful 17th century building in Topsham, an ancient port on the River Exe. Lily Neal, the owner and manager, aims to provide a special atmosphere in which book lovers with varied interests will feel at home. She has 24 years of experience in dealing in books.

Our large general stock covers many areas of interest, including Devon and West Country Topography, British and World Topography, History (especially Social History and Archaeology), The Arts, Transport and English Literature. We have a large stock of fiction titles.

The stock is mainly out-of-print and secondhand books, both paperback and hardback, including antiquarian, though we stock a few new titles of local interest. We offer a search service for books we don’t have in stock.
