"Bloomsbury's best bookshop, well stocked on London, local history, architecture and travel books. There are many bargains to be had too."

Literary London. Ed Glinert. Penguin 2007

"There is so much stock in this two storey gem that step ladders are provided so customers can reach the upper shelves. The shop is full of second-hand and discounted new books in all subjects areas ... The scope and number of volumes is vast and the prices are competitive, with bargain tables outside. One of the most enticing bookshops in London."

Book Lovers' London. Lesley Reader. Metro Guides 2006.

Judd Stamp Card

Spend £10 and get one stamp.

Collect 8 stamps & get £10 off your next purchase

One stamp will be given for every £10 spent in the shop in one transaction. For example spending £25 will earn two stamps on the card. The number of stamps issued always matches the final transaction value.

You must present the stamp card to collect your stamps at the time of purchase as we will be unable to issue stamps at a later date.

Judd Books may stop issuing stamp cards and withdraw the stamp card scheme at any time and on such notice as it shall deem appropriate. Photocopied, altered or defaced cards and/or stamps will not be accepted. We may treat as void any stamp card you present if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you are in breach of these terms and conditions or your participation is fraudulent. The stamp card cannot be exchanged for a cash alternative. Use of the stamp card implies acceptance of the terms and conditions of use. Stamp cards are issued by Judd Books and remain their property who reserve the right to take any actions deemed necessary if it reasonably believes you have misused the card; and on reasonable notice to alter or amend the terms and conditions of operation of the stamp card.
