Smelly

The smell of books are intoxicating.

An English librarian named Abel Joshua Higginbotham established Higginbotham’s after allegedly arriving in India as a British stowaway.In the 1840s he found employment as a librarian with a bookstore named Weslyan Book Shop run by Protestant missionaries.However, the store suffered heavy losses and the missionaries who ran the business decided to sell their shop for a low price. Higginbotham purchased the business, set up his own store and called it “Higginbotham’s” in the year 1844.Higginbotham’s is, therefore, India’s oldest bookstore in existence. Source : WIKIPEDIA.

Since 1949 this is owned & managed by the Amalgamations Group.
