You are bidding for a copy of VISITORS GUIDE TO TORQUAY AND DISTRICT published circa 1950s


I have now been selling books on Ebay for around two years and have, during that time, attempted to give a full description of the content of the book offered for sale.  Most books sold are on the subjects of local history and topography and it has become apparant to me that, although a full resume of the subject matter and content of the book is of interest to some, the vast majority of my successful bidders already know of the book being offered for sale and have a very good idea of the content.  I have therefore decided that for future listings I will follow the method used by other sellers and merely quote keywords which may help ebay members find the listing in their searches together with a desciption of the condition of the book.  However should anyone like more information about a specific book, I will gladly, on request, provide a fuller and more comprehensive description of the contents.  Hopefully, adopting this revised method of listing, will be less time consuming and will therefore enable me to list more books in the future.




An informative guide that not only promotes the sights and attractions to a visitor to the area but also includes a number of local adverts of the era.  A publication that would almost certainly prove to be a valuable addition to the collection of anyone who has connections with the area or who has an interest on local or family history in this region of Great Britain.


Undated.  The dates given are only an estimate which may be inaccurate.




May have some signs of wear but in overall good condition for a publication of this age.




All books can be collected from my office in Hull to save postage if required by the successful bidder.  Where postage is paid I reserve the right to delivery by hand if I chose to do so.


Payment is only accepted by Paypal, UK Bank Personal Cheque or UK Postal Order and must be received by me within 6 days of the auction ending.


Postal charges quoted are for despatch within the UK.  Postal charges to destinations abroad will be quoted on request.


Please note that postal delivery times quoted by Ebay are calculated from the time of despatch from the Post Office and not from either the time the auction ends or the time that the payment is made.  Also please note that whilst I go to the Post Office twice a week I do not go every single day.  Under normal circumstances all items should reach the successful bidder within one week of cleared payment being received by me.  Finally please be aware that although I do obtain a proof of posting for all items posted no insurance cover is taken out unless specifically requested for by the buyer and the additional fees paid.

All books are despatched promptly in padded envelopes to help protect from damage in transit.


Please note that although the photo shown is of the title listed for sale it may or may not be of this specific copy and therefore attention should be paid to the description for guidance on the condition of the copy offered for sale.
