The location in Newark
Gladstone Books is located on the ground floor (Unit 38) of The Newark Antique Centre, (large star on map below) which is situated in a former Congregational chapel built in 1822 – nine years before the eponymous William Gladstone first entered parliament as an MP for Newark. (The entrance road – orange on map - is opposite the Lombard Street Bus Station.)
The books and their owner
About 2,500 good quality books are on display, with extensive selections of history, poetry, essays, biographies, local and natural history, gardening, agriculture, various arts, philosophy, theology, science, technology, sociology, politics, classical fiction and reference books. Most books are hardback, and include antiquarian, rare and some brand-new books. The prices are quite modest (e.g. compared with on-line prices) – as I regard this to be more of a service than a business.
As a retired university professor, I have spent a lifetime which has been much involved with books - as author, editor, reviewer, collector and latterly, for nearly 20 years, book dealer. For the two years (2015 to 2017) Gladstone Books was based at Southwell, Notts, where it received several unsolicited recommendations - for examples of which click button A (below).
But changing circumstances have now resulted in the return (via a year in Lincoln) to Newark, where I first started it in another centre on Castlegate, which unfortunately closed a couple of years later. I hope my persistence will indicate the enthusiasm which I continue to bring to this enterprise, almost twenty years after my official retirement!
