About the Bookseller

As the author of 28 books on the countryside, shooting and natural history, and as a life-long collector of books, I have a particularly detailed knowledge of birds, wildlife and country sports such as shooting, fishing and hunting. My bestselling titles include Tales of the Old Gamekeepers, Tales of the Old Countrymen and The Great Shoots - Britain's Best Past and Present (third edition published November 2018), while my Sporting Birds of the British Isles won an international conservation award. My retail outlet, where many of my books listed on ABE (www.Abebooks.com) may be viewed, is in the Mezzanine Showroom at Christique, 11 West St, Dorking, Surrey RH4 1BL. I have been in this charming old antiques centre since 2010. It has an excellent cafe, the Fig Tree, and the town is renowned for its large number of antiques shops. Sadly, I left Honeypot Antiques at Elstead in September 2017, after 16 years there, when the shop was sold for building redevelopment. As I am based in south-west Surrey, my wide-ranging stock of topographical books always includes many titles on Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, as well as London; but I also have many other books covering other parts of the British Isles. Other special areas of interest include children's books, antiquarian, fine bindings, travel, motoring, cars, motorcycles and naval and military. Most prices range from £10 to £1000. I am always pleased to visit to view books with a view to purchase, I offer a free booksearch service and will value books for insurance etc. My books are always competitively priced and I always give detailed descriptions of books, with precise details of condition. I also provide as many pictures as possible of every book and welcome enquiries of any nature. The shipping/postage rates are guidelines for average weights only, to 1kg unpacked. An accurate shipping/postage cost, relative to the exact weight, with choice of insurance and speed of delivery, will be given on request and/or at the time of order. I can be contacted any time on 01428 682567, mobile 0777 3112101, email: brianphilipmartin@yahoo.co.uk

Shipping Terms

Most of my books can be shipped to any part of the world or collected by arrangement. Orders usually ship within 2 business days and frequently within one day of cleared payment. Please note that the default ABE shipping charges do not necessarily apply and that in most cases my shipping charges are considerably less. The rate for first-class Royal Mail letter post or parcel post within the UK is often specified with the item description. Please advise if you would prefer second-class post, recorded delivery, special delivery etc. If an overseas rate is not specified please ask for a quote. Post and packing charges are kept to a modest limit reflecting the true cost. If extra insurance (such as through special delivery or international signed for) is not detailed but required then please ask for a quote. In any event, for Royal Mail items a certificate of posting will always be obtained. All books are very securely packaged.
