I've just enjoyed 10 pages of some very 'Bohemia in London' style writing from a free PDF discovered online.

Have a look at "The Hunting-Grounds of London" from "The Romance of Book-Collecting" (1898) by J.H. Slater at the link below (ignore the fact that the website address uses the word "porno" in it!). I guess this was a decade before Ransome's London times, but probably reflects the bookseller situation well.

I enjoyed it. There are other essays about book collecting.
