Below are our most recent catalogues. Each year we choose the finest books for our Christmas catalogue which are titles we feel will stand the test of time; perhaps classics for the future. Within these catalogues there are novels, biographies and books on gardening, philosophy, history, travel and sport: almost every subject you could wish for. Each also has a large section of children’s books for every age.

Hatchards is the oldest bookshop in London and in Celebrating 220 Years of Bookselling we have selected the books which would have been sold throughout its history; bestsellers of the day which are still being read today. This catalogue also tells the story of the shop, from its beginnings under John Hatchard himself through 220 years of literary and turbulent history. The Novels and Novellas catalogues each contain our favourite 100 works of fiction, arranged chronologically from the early nineteenth century to the present day. The current staff chose the titles – causing many friendly but passionate debates within the shop.

We hope you enjoy perusing these catalogues; to enquire about any of the books please email, telephone (0207 439 9921) or, better still, visit the shop. We are open from 9.30-8 Mondays to Saturdays and 12.30-6.30 on Sundays. We look forward to seeing you.
