December 2017

Welcome to our
News & Special Offers Section

A lot of new titles are being listed - hundreds of books on Marxism, especially economics, and all in excellent condition. Some very interesting early British socialist pamphlets - Clarion, Social Democratic Federation etc. And one from the little known Labour Abstentionist Party by Edgar Whitehead, with a Preface by Tom Mann.

There are early copies of the Communist International, interesting documents from the liberation movement in Zimbabwe, and a large collection of Fabian Society pamphlets.

January will see many new posters on our listings and with images on our website. We hope to produce Bargains Lists more often than in recent years.
