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..........
