Suppliers of out of print and hard-to-find books to academics, collectors and readers since 2000

C L Hawley

We pride ourselves on our customer service, our knowledge of our specialist stock, and our well packaged and promptly posted parcels of books.

Our aim is to provide a service where out-of-print academic material in our specialist areas can easily be found, as well as finding new homes for children’s books and local history.

Books are posted promptly, usually the following day, and tough professional book boxes are used. We can hold wants lists and let customers know when titles are in stock, and we perform book searches. We are always looking to buy books in our subject specialisms, and can buy by post or travel to larger collections.

“Second-hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.”

Street Haunting, A London Adventure (1927) by Virigina Woolf
