G. & J. Chesters

Welcome to our website.

If not described individually, all books are in very good condition unless otherwise described. All are hardbacks unless described as 'pbk' or 'paperback'. All are first editions unless described as later editions or reprints. We stock a large number of antique maps and prints. Many of these can be viewed on eBay in our shop under our eBay name of polesworthantiqueprintsshop .

Our shop is open daily, except Sunday, from 9.30 to 5.30, but we stay open late till 9.00 on Wednesdays. We have a stock of over 40,000 books and have just doubled our selling space by taking on first-floor premises above our established shop.

We offer a changing selection of old and out-of-print books in a wide range of subjects. We also carry a very large stock of original PRINTS and MAPS. Well worth a ride out!
