In 1986 Pearl and I decided to leave London and downsize, buying a village store in the heart of rural South Devon. An interesting experience but in 1989, when the opportunity came, we jumped at the chance to move further west, this time to the more rugged splendour of West Cornwall. And since 1990 here, from our home in a little hamlet between The Lizard and St Michael's Mount, we have been running a cottage industry, a virtual book shop, from where we sell books to customers around the world. Our stock is small but, we believe, full of interesting books. Each book is carefully described then scanned and we are always happy to provide additional scans on request.
N.B. With no retail premises, books are stored rather than shelved and so business is STRICTLY POSTAL ONLY I'm afraid and if you have a question it is always better to email so that we can have the book to hand before answering.
SPECIAL NOTE - WE ALWAYS REPLY TO INQUIRIES PROMPTLY -ONE WORKING DAY- SO PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU GIVE THE CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS AND THAT IT WILL ACCEPT EMAILS WITH IMAGES AND IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD FROM US, CHECK YOUR SPAM FILTER.
In addition to selling books we also repair and restore books.
From simple repairs to complete restoration, I strive to provide a functional rather than 'Fine Art' service. Anything from a simple repair to a torn page, to complete reconstruction including replacing missing pages in facsimile, the whole re-sewn and rebound in cloth or leather, as required.
I also make Slipcases and Boxes.
Where possible I recycle materials to maintain authenticity and avoid the sometimes 'jarring' look of new materials.
Though most work is on stock I am happy to quote for work on commission.
