Treadwells is moving

It has outgrown its current location and will be moving to the alliterative 33 Store St in February. Let's hope that magical atmosphere of the current shop carries over to the new one. Also, they are having a 2nd hand booksale starting next Monday with tons of paperbacks all priced at £1. Sounds good to me.

I did some Googling of the new address and found some interesting links:
- THE HISTORY AND LIFE OF THE REVEREND DOCTOR JOHN TAULER WITH TWENTY-FIVE OF HIS SERMONS (translated from German and published by ALLENSON & CO., LTD. 33 STORE STREET • LONDON W.C.1. in 1905)
- Mr Robert Davis, a painter and glazier of 33 Store St giving evidence at the Old Bailey in a case of embezzlement.
- a strange pdf booklist in English from a Spanish language website which refers to, on page 5, in a section called Other Soul-Enlarging Weapons, Beyond the Horizon by Grace Rosher, 1961, published by James Clarke & Co 33 Store St. A bit more research shows that James Clarke & Co is still a going concern and still carriesthis title. Grace Rosher was a portrait painter of some skill who was a leading proponent of automatic writing.

The place obviously has a history of esoteric doings and seems a suitable venue. It's also equidistant between the British Museum (Montague Place entrance) and the Wheatsheaf pub. Dare one call it a nexus already?

Bohemian Bloomsbury, a good choice. Looking forward to visiting the new shop. Apparently there'll be bigger space for the talks. All sounds positive!
