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 ATTACK AT DEVIZES, 15-16TH JULY 2017. SEEMS A LONG WAY OFF BUT WILL SOON BE HERE..........

NEDIALKOV. D
£110.00
Notes: FOUR LANDSCAPE FORMAT STAPLED BOOKLETS. THESE COME IN A SLIPCASE AND ARRIVED WITH ME IN SHRINK WRAP. HOWEVER THE SLIPCASE HAS TAKEN QUITE A KNOCK TO THE BOTTOM CORNER ( SEE SCAN) AND THE BOOKLETS ARE LIGHTLY CREASED ON THE BOTTOM CORNER AS A RESULT. PART 4 HAS THE TIP OF THE LAST FEW PAGES CURLED ON THAT CORNER. THERE IS ALSO A LIGHT CREASE ON THE TOP CORNER OF THE BOOKLETS BECAUSE THE SLIP CASE HAS A CUT-OFF CORNER AND ALLOWED THE BOOKLETS TO BE SLIGHTLY BENT WITHIN THE SHRINK WRAP. EACH BOOKLET IS 60 PAGES. ENGLISH AND BULGARIAN TEXT. BLACK AND WHITE ILLUSTRATIONS. BOOKLETS VERY GOOD APART FROM THE ALREADY MENTIONED CORNERS.
