We are UK-based collectors of ultra-modern (almost exclusively post-2000) signed first editions, now down-sizing our collection and giving others the opportunity to enjoy the special books that have provided us with so much enjoyment and satisfaction over the years. We are offering an eclectic mix of books for sale, with large numbers of signed UK first editions in categories including crime, historical fiction, science fiction and thrillers. We are also offering many limited / special editions, including numbered editions. For many authors, we are able to offer single listings comprising sets or series of multiple books. We aim to provide maximum customer satisfaction and to treat you as we would wish to be treated ourselves. With that in mind, we will provide accurate descriptions with photos (and additional photos on request), rapid despatch (almost always within 24 hrs of the receipt of your order) and safe and secure mailing (using proper book wraps / boxes and - for books sold for more than £50 only using despatch methods that are fully tracked, insured and will require a signature on delivery). Postage costs are included in our prices for UK customers. For overseas customers, we have set a standard Abe postal rate, but will communicate direct with customers and charge the actual cost of postage and packing by tracked and insured delivery methods requiring signature. It is a condition of sale that any customs or other taxes or duties associated with the purchase of books from us for delivery outside the UK are the responsibility of the buyer. Please note that new EU regulations make it impractical for us to post books to the EU. Therefore, prospective customers from the EU are requested to email us before making an order so that we can discuss how best we might get the books they want to them.
All books are sold as described. We try to provide photos of all faults, but are limited by the Abe Books limit of 5 photos per listing. If you would like further photos for any item, please let us know.
