We buy books, too. If you have some books for sale and are within a reasonable distance (10-20 miles) then give us a ring (further for larger collections). We don't make an offer unseen so we would need to have the opportunity to view first, after which you can accept or reject any offer.

If you want to obtain an idea of the saleability of any book we advise that you take it along to your local secondhand bookstore.

Note: We do not offer free valuations. We are happy to receive details of collections or interesting single items available for sale within our specialities but would need a description of books, an idea of the quantity involved and details of how and when they may be viewed (within UK only).

Please include these details in the body of your email. Any attached file must be in .txt, .rtf or .csv format. Unsolicted files in .doc, xls or .pdf formats will be deleted.

The ABfaR Blog

A recent contribution on the ABfaR blog is an update for the 75th anniversary in February this year of the raid which led to the installation of an 'immediate danger' air raid warning in 1942, a warning which sounded like the call of a cuckoo. Prior to that was a brief piece about Georgette Heyer's An Infamous Army with illustrations of the maps from the 1st edition for those reading later editions without them.



Lowestoft Ephemera

I maintain another site called Old Lowestoft. It is a collection point for various ephemeral items of local historical interest. Buried within that site is Letters from Lowestoft, a collection of letters of local Lowestoft war news written during WW2.

For information about the 1916 German bombardment of Lowestoft during WW1 you can find the full text of my family's account of the bombardment on the 'Old Lowestoft' site.

Latest stock additions

I'm adding new stock as time permits, usually only 20-30 books at a time.

I have managed to add a couple of posts to my blog but little else.

I have continued buying interesting stock when it has been offered and I still have a Georgette Heyer collection waiting to be processed.

In the meantime please watch this space!
