About this seller

I have been selling secondhand books since the 1990s, my major specialities being books on Africa, West Indies, Cricket and the works of Alec Waugh. Like all booksellers, I have other areas on which a number of books are available, such as Dorset, Golf, Kent, Military, Ornithology, the Pacific and Railways. I am also able to sell a number of books on Cranbrook, the lovely little Kent town where I live - see the "Cranbrook" catalog. The "Kent" catalog is therefore essentially non-Cranbrook. I joined the AbeBooks system in April 2010. Because of the first UK lockdown, my books went offline in March 2020; following the easing of regulations and the cruellest of family bereavements, my books were restored online in late October 2020 but for only two months or so before a lengthy lockdown was announced. Now restored again as of mid-March 2021. New acquisitions means that I am regularly uploading additional books, so please bookmark the Carvid Books site and check back every now and then! PLEASE NOTE, however, that because of the ongoing pandemic and the need to remain vigilant, I only mail out books twice per week (normally Tuesdays and Fridays). For customers within the EU, and indeed elsewhere, please note that I cannot take any responsibility for any delay or any clearing charges or fees on arrival.
