Welcome to News and Special Offers

The number of items for sale will be over 28,000 by the time you read this. Of course if I suddenly have large sales this will slip and it may be some months before the target is reached, but 30,000 figure is in sight for the medium term. There is certainly no shortage of material to list!

There are a lot of new titles on Africa - especially Southern Africa and Nigeria/Biafra.
A big group of ILP pamphlets will be added next.

BARGAINS
Every three months we will list a new selection of bargains these have to be ordered direct from us and not via ABE, where they are listed at the full price. The bargain price is given in brackets after the current price.
