We are always looking to buy good-quality books on topics relating to our specialist subject areas.
Scroll down for a list of books we are currently seeking.

As a general rule the book will need to be hard-to-find, a first edition, hardback (if published in this format), in very good condition, have the dust jacket (if published with one) and not an ex-library copy. There are always exceptions, such as if the book is signed or was owned by someone of significance, so please feel welcome to offer books that do not fall within these rules.

Images of any books you have to sell can be sent to us directly via WhatsApp to 07783257663. If you are looking to sell a number of books an initial photograph of the spines will be sufficient. Photos can also be emailed here.

Alternatively, please complete the form below, giving as much detail as possible about the book(s) you have for sale. Ideally we need the title, year of publication, binding (hardback or paperback), details of any damage or inscriptions, location of the book, and any other points of interest.

If we are interested in purchasing your book(s) we will make you an offer. This offer will be based on a fair cost price for trade, with a view to retailing the book on our website.
