Should you have any queries about a specific item or a more general enquiry please contact Nigel Wallace.



We are always interested in purchasing collections of good quality books in any quantity and are happy to travel the country for this purpose. We also provide valuations for insurance and probate and can assure an expert and discreet service at all times.

All books are sent on approval and may be returned within two weeks of receipt for whatever reason. Books may be returned at our expense if they are found not to be as described. Postage will be charged at cost (most inland parcels will not exceed 3.80 and we can offer preferential rates for overseas customers); all parcels are fully insured at our expense.

All overseas parcels will be sent standard airmail service (2-3 weeks) unless otherwise requested.

Payment can be made by credit-card (Access, Visa, Mastercard & JCB), cheque or bank draft. You may wish for security reasons to send card details in two parts.

If you wish to return a book please inform us first, and await our acknowlegment and shipping instructions before dispatch.
