Owned and run by David Gower-Spence, this site also lists the books many other independent second hand book sellers from across the world. All of us, I am a dealer first and foremost with a small stock of around 40,000 secondhand books, are committed to providing the level of service that you would expect of professionals in the out of print and antiquarian book world.

About Us

The site offers secure ordering, of course, and you deal directly with the book seller to complete the transaction. Your questions regarding any book for sale can be directed to the dealer if you prefer. That contact is welcomed and can be made through the site. With a little fewer than half a million books here, you are not going to find every title listed of course.

That said, if it's here then you can rest assured of being in the good hands of our little band of brothers! Comments on the site, dealers and most things can be directed to me (using the contact us page) but please, don't mention politics, recession, bonuses or, indeed, quantitive easing!

I, personally, also keep a small selection of stock at the Post Office in Peasedown St. John and you can get an idea of what's in stock at any time by clicking here.

As well as thousands of second hand and out of print books, I offer a range of bibliographies, book valuations(currently suspended due to other pressures), you can sell your books through the site if you're a dealer and a free book search service. You will also find a selection of links to other book related web sites.

Company Background

Established in 1997, is owned by David Gower-Spence and operated from within the Post Office in the Somerset village of Peasedown St. John. Along with my wife, Heather, we run the business for lovers of books of whatever vintage or genre.

Originally this site was purely a place to sell my own books, but in 2005 I decided that it might be nice to welcome a few like-minded independent book sellers onto the site. Currently I have over fifty such sellers listing some 350,000 titles for your delectation. Of course, the world doesn't really need another "book dealer aggregating" site... that's why I call this a Book Sellers Portmanteau... which is nice!

Books Wanted

These are the latest 100 or so book searches that have been placed on the site. If you've a copy of the book that's being searched you can use the link to offer your copy to the searcher - once the initial contact is made you and the searcher conclude the deal to your mutual satisfaction. If you're a book dealer and would like to receive my daily summary of books wanted then please click here. The email contains full contact details of each searcher so that you can offer books directly.

Will I buy your books?

I am always looking to buy good quality, non-fiction, books whether hardback or paperback. I'll happily travel anywhere between Dorchester to the south, Taunton to the west, Swindon to the east and Gloucester to the north to view and collect. I am particularly keen to purchase books in the following areas, theology, history, biography, travel, military, transport and sci-fi.
