Latest titles:

  1. Next Stop Seaton! – 66 Years of Modern Electric Tramways Limited, 4th edition, D. Voice, A4 softback, 166pp, £25
  2. Life of Thomas Telford, “Civil Engineer, written by himself, containing a descriptive narrative of his professional labours with a folio atlas of copper plates, edited by John Rickman… 1838.” It has taken several years to bring this reprint to completion because of the difficulties in reducing the size of the plates which were much larger than the text, and many of which have had to be folded. The text and illustrations were bound separately and in different sizes, but we have managed to combine them in one volume. The text comprises 719pp and there are 82 plates. These include canals [Ellesmere, Caledonian, Birmingham], bridges [Buildwas Iron, Bewdley, Tongueland, Dunkeld, Alness, Helmsdale, Menai Suspension], aqueducts [Chirk, Pont-y-cyssylte], harbours & docks [Aberdeen, Dundee, St. Katherine], and roads [Glasgow & Carlisle, Lanarkshire, Holyhead]. It is thread sewn for strength and hard bound in blue buckram with gold lettering on front and spine. (I believe I paid over £3000 for the originals, I was told that, oddly, the text volume was much rarer than that of illustrations). The first (and may be the last!) print run is limited to 50 copies, £145

New customers: please note that I always try and note serious defects, but not blemishes like inscriptions, odd handwritten notes, slight creasing/grubbiness/tears, dust spots, or rusty staples. Inevitably dustwrappers (d/w) are often worn at the edges. Also folded maps often have small tears at the folds, but again, I will note any more serious tears.

Postage is extra at cost, and there is no packing charge for second-hand material.   This list only represents a fraction of my stocks – please enquire about other titles.

Measurements I give for posters, plans, photographs etc. are approximate.

Abbreviations: dw = dustwrapper, pp = pages, pb or sb = paperback, hb = hardback, inc = includes; pagination, where I have put “+pp” it means that there are more than the stated number of pages due to some being unnumbered (usually photographs)

Finally: If anyone is considering disposing of some or all of their collections, then distance is no object – I have an agent, John Wiltshire, tel: 01295 816963, in the south, near Banbury, who can travel to calls in England, while I can cover Scotland.
