£1 Book Basement


Deep down in the Housmans basement we have a vast, diverse, and ever-changing selection of second-hand books at the truly bargain price of £1.

There are lots of great titles, primarily politics and fiction, but also a lot more besides. There's always new stock coming in, so do drop in regularly to get the best of the bunch.


Please donate your old books


Please support one of Britain’s last radical bookshops by donating your books to Housmans. Not only will you be keeping your books alive and in circulation, but also helping to support the shop.
Cash will be paid for uncommon and unusual titles, and we shall endeavour to collect from anywhere in the country.
