We are interested in buying second hand books in large or small quantities. Due to our own space constraints we ideally look to select titles from larger libraries, but can clear entire collections under certain circumstances.
The following list is of the subject areas we are most interested in buying, but please feel free to get in touch if you have material not in the list. We may be able to put you in touch with an interested party even if they are not for us.
Arts: Architecture, Art History, Art Criticism, Art of the Far East, Design, Film & TV, Graphic Novels, Music (particularly contemporary and alternative), Propaganda Art, Street Art
Humanities: Ancient History, Archaeology, Cold War History, Early Modern History, Imperial History, Industrial Archaeology, Labour History, Local History (particularly Bristol), Medieval History, Military History, Modern History, Naval & Maritime History, Politics (particularly left-wing), Philosophy, Religion & the Occult, Revolutionary History, Social History
Social Sciences: Anthropology, Economics, Human Geography, Media, Psychology, Social Theory (particularly Critical, Marxist, Post-colonial & Postmodern)
If you are looking to fill a private room or public space with a larger quantity of second hand books, or find cheap stock for resale, we may be able to help.
For a purchase of a larger quantity of books we offer a rate of 50p per book. This rate is available on a minimum purchase of 50 books. Whilst there is no fixed maximum quantity we are unlikely to be able to provide more than 300 books in any one lot.
The particular books included would be selected by ourselves, a mixture of hardbacks and paperbacks can be arranged as required, and all books will be in at least Good condition.
Whilst particular subject matter cannot be guaranteed we would be willing to tailor the selection to a particular genre on request if available. Areas in which we are likely to be able to offer a consistent bulk purchase are history, politics and religion, the arts and fiction. Please inquire as to availability. At times we may be able to cater to other genres depending on stock intake.
This is a collection only service.
Please contact for more details.
If you are struggling to locate a book, or fed up with making online purchases, we offer a book search and provision service. We cannot guarantee locating particularly scarce titles but will conduct an extensive search. We charge a fee of 10% of purchase price, with a minimum charge of 50p. This can include shipping to your address or collection from the shop.
