Directions to Stephen Foster / Foster Books

We are an old fashioned general antiquarian bookshop with a leaning to illustrated, finely bound and first edition books.

Established in 1968, our family-run business has now passed to a second generation of booksellers. We are based in the oldest shop on the Chiswick High Road, which dates from the late 18th century. As well as being an open Bricks & Mortar shop, we also supply books via the internet to customers around the World. We have mail collected every weekday, and our packing zealot Richard, is never happier than when our books arrive in good order with our customers. We specialise in antiquarian books, fine bindings, children's illustrated and first editions, as well as a general stock leaning to literature and the arts. We are members of the ABA, ILAB and PBFA
