We want information.

This website is an online extension of the shop window, designed to entice you to visit. It will never be possible to list everything online.

The online stock is a refined version of the shop, offering quality, not quantity. All points and faults are detailed. We hate wasting our time, so unless something is very rare, you will never find any items listed with previous owners’ markings, price clipped dust jackets and NEVER ex-library.

We are open 6 days a week.

However we’ve sometimes limit walk-in browsing- so : PLEASE RING THE BELL.

Monday to Friday,
Around & about 11am-6pm.

Saturday Noon to SIX
