Our books on offer are on arts, science and political subjects, mostly from 1890 to 1990 but with a number outside this time frame dating back to 1673 and up to 2020. There is the occasional fiction book too. All photographs are of the actual item you will receive.
Some of our latest additions
“What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
[Cosmos, Part 11: The Persistence of Memory (1980)]”
