Updated May 2013

Sorry this site has not been updated lately, the reason being that I now sell very few new titles although I do still select the worthy few. I now mostly deal in older and higher value books. Still, don't hesitate to ask if there is something special you need in new releases...

And please visit my blog for the odd piece that may or may not amuse!!!
