The Basement Bookshop was located in the back of the Basement Radical Social Centre in Manchester, England. They sold a selection of books on various topics including anarchism, anarcho-syndicalism, insurrectionism, anarcho-primitivism, situationism, marxist theory, post-marxist theory, feminism, animal rights, bike maintenance, history, subvertising, and DIY sex toys.
They also carried many local zines, as well as some non-local zines.
In 2007, a neighborhood fire caused the Centre to flood  and it was forced to close down.  The temporary close stretched on with no news from the collective.  Presumably they were unable to fix the space and were forced to close permanently.
