We love our customers who want lots of books, however our shipping settings only accommodate a maximum of 237kg per order. If you want to order a large volume of books then simply contact us via this form  and we will make a bespoke shipping option just for you.


We actually have many more books in our Library than are currently available online, with more coming in all the time. If you can’t find what you are looking for it’s worth getting in touch. Just  click here and give us the details.

Occasionally, however, we are not a specialist antiquarian book dealer so we rarely stock that many. To browse the collection click here. Alternatively, another great option for a special birthday or anniversary gift is to buy a book published in the year that person was born or the year of the occasion. 

Shop by year. 


We try to select only the best quality vintage books, and work carefully to describe the condition accurately. However, please bear in mind that they can be anywhere from 50 to 300 hundred years old, so are never going to be perfect, but then again -

“If you look for perfection, you'll never be content.” 

― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
