I am still active and happy to visit if you have books to sell. It's safe to do so if social distancing is observed. I will obviously be wearing a mask at all times.



If you have books to sell please contact me.

I buy books in London, Surrey, Sussex, Middlesex, Hampshire, Berkshire and Kent, and I am willing to travel further for interesting material. Distance is no object.


I have been buying and selling books for over 35 years and have an extensive network of clients both here and overseas. I am constantly seeking fresh stock to meet their needs.
