Adam & Marianne Naylor established Bookfare in 1977 selling secondhand and antiquarian books from a shop in Edinburgh. Fifteen years later a second shop was opened in Windermere. Bookfare is now an internet business, offering books on a wide range of subjects with an emphasis on history and literature. New titles are added to the site daily so please browse the stock through the link below.
