As from Monday, the flagship Waterstone's store in Gower Street will be hoisting the Capuchin Classics flag. This store, formerly incarnated as Dillon's Mallet Street, combines superb academic stock - serving as it does the bookish needs of the students and staff of UCL - with a very wide range of general trade books, all attractively displayed, and sold by booksellers whose knowledge and enthusiasm for their subjects is a byword in bookselling. The Grade 1 listed building in which all this is housed is very worthy of attention in itself.

Those of you in, near or passing through London should be able to see the main window adorned with large reproductions of some Capuchin covers, and to browse through a comprehensive selection of the titles in the shop. Buying a good number of same is highly recommended.
