With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

They come from all spheres of professional activity. Many are now obscure, but even if you don't know the indvidual, you can appreciate and enjoy the visual send-up of him. Tight and clean. A little shelfwear along edges of the boards. Minor scuffing of the calf and boards.
