Regulars will know that I am gradually clearing out my collection & selling only rare books and maps here on ebay. I am selling the last of them over Christmas, at low start prices to make sure they go. This is a last chance to pick up some beautiful and unusual items at realistic prices!
NOTE: All items are sent 'trackable', ie registered, signed for or airsure, depending on your preference. This is more expensive but more secure. The prices quoted for post are NOT just for ordinary post, they are for trackable post.
