New Old and New Books

Posted by on Oct 13, 2010 in Books, New stock | 6 comments

New titles are constantly being added to our range of second-hand books. Recently I bought another major collection of books on mentalism and related crafts, including many rare and out-of-print titles. (Those who have titles on a ‘wants list’ with us will have been emailed where appropriate.)

The problem is keeping our lists up to date. I’ve therefore decided to list a few choice titles here from time to time. Prices in brackets are new/original prices, the final price on each item is our selling price (all plus post at cost). Drop me an email if you’re interested.

Have you heard about this great new book club? You send them £20 and they leave you alone for the rest of the year.
