We are a small book trading business operating from our home in South Devon. We offer a professional and friendly service and have many satisfied customers at home and abroad.

Our main business is supplying both rare and new books on polar exploration but we also have a general selection of interesting antiquarian and secondhand books which we trade at book fairs and by mail order.

A selection of collectable books from my stock is on display at KINGSBRIDGE ANTIQUES CENTRE, Church Street TQ7 IDE (01548 857155)
