- What’s On
John Sandoe is currently the only bookshop in the universe to stock a complete set of Cornucopia back issues, including the rarest of the rare, No 1. It also keeps a good selection of titles published in Turkey, hand-picked from Cornucopia’s online bookshop, and John Sandoe’s owner, Johnny de Falbe, is happy to order others. If you live in or near London, we strongly recommend ordering your Cornucopia books through them.
Founded in 1957 a stone’s throw from Sloane Square, John Sandoe Books Ltd is one of London’s foremost and best-loved independent bookshops. Its beautiful 18th-century premises is home to an astonishing 30,000 titles, carefully selected by staff with nearly 100 years of bookselling - and reading - between them, making Sandoe’s a legend among bibliophiles in London and around the world.
Very much a kindred spirit, the bookshop hosted the first in a series of Cornucopia conversations on March 30. Professor Robert Ousterhout discussed his book Palmyra 1885 with Professor Charlotte Roueché at a delightful, sold-out event.
John Sandoe also offers three books published recently by Caique Publishing, the publishers of Cornucopia, which explore three fascinating British country houses.John Sandoe Books is a Cornucopia Stockist – get your copy of the latest issue here.
