Books For Sale

I need to generate some shelf space badly and the cash will come in useful too.  Here are a selection of the books I have for sale, (many more on Amazon where I’m ‘gaskella2′, but more expensive there as there are Amazon fees to pay).  All are books either from my late Mum, ones that I have bought etc, not review copies. I’ve concentrated on collectible/out of print editions, and will add to the list from time to time so do pop back… and thank you for looking.

Each as priced with P&P quoted for UK addresses, adjusted for multiple purchases – do make me an offer. I am happy to send worldwide, but you will need to pay the appropriate P&P for airmail or surface according to the weight (see listings).  All will be sent wrapped in bubble wrap then appropriate outer mailer. Payment by cheque or Paypal.  E-mail me to reserve or ask questions – gaskella at hotmail dot com. I have a spreadsheet of other less collectible books for sale – drop me an email if you’d like a copy.
