About the Bookseller

We are a small, single-owner business. We have been operating on and off since 1977 and our stock is varied, leaning towards antiquarian and 19th century with the addition of original aquatint and lithographic, or woodcut engravings. Also maps and Ephemera - in fact, anything interesting on paper really. We have in stock every item we list. We do not use stock photographs, but photograph each item individually whenever possible. We very rarely use "fine" or "mint" as a description, mainly due to the age and the fact that 99.9% of what we sell has been pre-owned and therefor Fine would not be a term for a book we sell despite its fine-like appearance. We always take items back unreservedly if not in the condition as described. We always try to describe fully. We offer books on many subjects and do not specialise. We have sold books to some major libraries worldwide over the past 30 years or so and many serious private collectors all over the world. Some of these satisfied clients include The British Library & UCLA in California, the National Portrait Gallery and others without returns. We are happy to take enquiries for books and will attempt to answer any questions about books we are selling. Our service to both the book trade and public is exactly the same with the same commitment to provide you with the book as described and standards. We describe our items carefully (with the odd human error, for which we accept all returns unconditionally). We always offer complete books unless stated in the description. We don't sell from a warehouse and we do not sell Print-on-Demand copies or facsimile copies.
