One of Britain's oldest independent bookstores, Bauermeister Books of Edinburgh, has closed after 110 years in business.

The store's closure sees Edinburgh lose its last general independent bookstore. Owner Ken Bauermeister said that his decision to retire coupled with no family member to leave the business to and little interest from elsewhere meant that closure was the only option.

The bookstore was opened by Ken Bauermeister's grandfather in 1894 and has remained in the family for three generations, reports Publishing News.
