The Calder Bookshop is London’s premier source for theatre books, whether you are looking for new plays, elegant second-hand copies, rare editions or books on the theory and craft of the stage. The Calder is named for John Calder, friend to and publisher of Samuel Beckett. We sell a range of original Calder publications of Beckett’s nonfiction.

In addition to theatre, we specialise in philosophy, politics, political history, and psychology books. Our selection of second-hand stock ranges across genres to all areas of interest. Have a browse of some of our standout second-hand pieces, available for purchase online.
