Cambridge University Press Bookshop posted on 1 December 2012
1 Trinity Street, Cambridge, is one of the most historic sites in bookselling. Books have been sold here since at least 1581, making it the oldest bookshop site in the country.
Cambridge University Press was granted its Letters Patent (a ‘royal charter’) by Henry VIII in 1534. Since the Press took over the bookshop site in 1992, enormous changes have occurred in publishing, and today the Press is a world leader in digital printing, e-publishing, CD ROMs, and print on demand.
We are proud to showcase a huge range of the Press’s publishing, and offer a calm, friendly atmosphere in which to browse.
The ground floor features sections displaying our most recent publications, popular local interest titles, general books such as the classic Canto series, our best-selling Companions, and other Humanities and Social science subjects.
Upstairs you will find Science and Maths titles, alongside Law, Classics and Theology – as well as the famous Cambridge Bibles.
Next door, at 27 Market Hill, you will discover the latest and most innovative publishing from Cambridge. All our English Language Teaching, and Educational resources are to be found here. The Learning Centre provides a bright and comfortable venue in which teachers and students alike can browse at leisure. There are computer terminals at which you can try out our online and e-products, and an interactive whiteboard to show our cutting edge technology in action.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Bookshop and the Learning Centre very soon!
