Fosters Bookshop, W4 2DR

Secondhand/antiquarian bookshop in Chiswick.

Excellent selection of books, none of which (apart from the half-price "review copies" on the table out the front) are less than a couple of decades old.

The books are kind of semi-ordered; there are definite "sections", e.g. London books, jolly hockey sticks books, classics, etc, but they're not labelled. The shelves are liberally sprinkled with notices exhorting you to "mind your head" and "remove your gloves".

Prices range all the way up from £2 for the books in the bookcase sat outside next to the door, via £20 for the most expensive book Kake looked at, to probably a lot more for the rarest.
