Hermit Kingdom Update: We regret that we can no longer supply books worth less than EU 150 directly to customers in the European Union. Our catalogue is available through third party sites: please place your order through either abebooks or biblio to ensure that the transaction is covered by the IOSS scheme. If possible, we will prepay local VAT on orders over EU 150, but this option is not yet available for all destinations.

Ivor Cutler | Gruts | Museum Press | 1962 | First Edition. Front cover set very slightly forward, edge of pageblock foxed. Jacket is unclipped, with traces of having once been crinkled about half way down the spine. There are odd vestigial traces of tape along the top & bottom of the jacket, I suppose from some kind of protective cover having been applied to it at some time. | £100.00

Sine; Malcolm Muggeridge [intr.] | Massacre | Penguin | 1966 | Some wear to cover, most evident on spine. Top edge & opening & closing pages foxed. Lower outer corner a little bumped. | £100.00

Geoffrey Willans and Ronald Searle | The Compleet Molesworth | Max Parrish | 1961 | Fourth impression, no jacket. Boards are rather worn & marked, & there is a light damp-stain in the gutter of the front endpapers & half tile page. The outer edge of the page block is similarly foxed & marked. Despite these faults, this remains a nice sturdy copy of this dethless classic, which is pleasant to handle & read. | £30.00

A. de C. Williams | The Marlborough Struwwelpeter | The Times Office Marlborough | N.D. | Very worn copy. Boards & backstrip are damp marked, as are corresponding areas of pastedown & endpapers. Corners are bowed. Binding still holds, but looks shaky. However, the book is complete & the colours of the illustrations are still bright. | £100.00
