I have been dealing in books for nearly 40 years and hold a large stock of secondhand books – mainly children’s and adult fiction, both hardback & paperback, but also annuals, magazines and some non-fiction.
Additionally I sell the new books reissued by GGBP, Greyladies, Books to Treasure & others, together with slightly cheaper shop-soiled copies.
I issue regular catalogues, both hardcopy & by email, and am happy to take wants lists. If you want to know any more about me or my books, do visit my website which I try to keep updated.

I stock twentieth-century children’s books, with a particular strength in girls’ school stories and historical fiction because those are my first loves. I also stock new GGBP titles as well as similar new books by other publishers. My most recent catalogue appears on the website. I am always happy to add people to the mailing list to receive them. I’ve got a very large selection of out of print GGBP titles available, including many EBD and Chalet fill-in titles, as well as Forest, Saville, Needham, Edwards and Trease. Please look at my latest catalogue on the website to see what I have available, although it is always worth emailing me if you are looking for a particular title that isn’t listed, as I have single copies of many that are not in the catalogue. I’m happy to post world-wide.
