About us

John Morten Booksellers, trading as E. J. Morten Booksellers, has been run from a quintessential cobbled street in Didsbury Village, South Manchester, since 1959 with three successive generations taking over the business. The business incorporates both a new retail book shop and a historical second-hand & antiquarian book arm.
