As indicated in 'Selling to us' in order to avoid being overwhelmed, we have had to try and avoid what appears to be the norm of having, say, X thousand books in stock which not only take up a considerable amount of space but also possibly result in many duplications.

he latter also means that monies better spent elsewhere are often tied-up for a considerable period of time- possibly even years!. 

 

The emphasis has had to be placed more on the turnover of fast-moving quality publications.

 

Listed below are a selection shown alphabetically by title and the prices reflect condition.
