Welcome!

We sell new and secondhand books, and specialise in history - mainly military and local history, although there is also a good selection on transport and more general topics. If you can’t find the book you are looking for it’s always worth contacting us to see if it has just come in. We also buy books - good, relevant collections always considered. Occasionally we close down completely for a couple of weeks at a time. Any e-mail enquiries during such periods will receive an automated response and we will deal with your enquiries on return.

Next show is Derby Worlds - this year at Bruntingthorpe Proving ground 7th and 8th October 2017. Those of you who have been trying to find books on the website might have noticed a problem with the listings. Webmaster is aware and trying to get it back to normal as soon as possible. Our apologies for the interruption in service.
