Established in Cartmel, Cumbria (The Lake District) in 1933 we have traded in secondhand and antiquarian books for over 80 years originally specialising in books on transport and engineering. Nowadays the business has expanded and is into its third generation and to reflect this we have recently changed our name to 'Kerr & Sons'. We maintain a high quality general stock of over 10,000 books and operate from our 'Priory Barn' showroom/store and our small bookshop in Cartmel village square. Opening hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 10am-4pm and Saturday 11am - 4pm. Other times by appointment. A wide cross section of our stock is listed online with images, and is available to view by appointment, so please contact us with your wants or to arrange a visit. We are currently full members of the ABA/ILAB (Antiquarian Booksellers Association) and will be offering a valuation and appraisal service in our region including Cumbria, Lancashire & the Lake District. www.kerrbooks.co.uk
