From 19th century to more modern collectables, as well as a large stock of inexpensive readers.
A large stock of poetry of all ages.
A lot of very collectable material housed in areas not immediately available in the main shop area, including:
an extensive T.S. Eliot selection
modern firsts including Ted Hughes, Dc La Mare, Dylan Tomas, Edward Thomas etc.
a large inexpensive stock of regular well known poets, and not~so-well known ones. Current stock also includes a quantity of private press material.
We specialise in Suffolk and East Anglia material, both the very collectable and the freely available;
similarly we try to stock as much as possible to cover the UK, and where possible the rest of the world.
A recent purchase includes about twenty books on Hawaii!
We also stock some ephemera, including post~cards, records and pictures.
Our stock extends to some 50,000 books on as wide a range of subjects as we have room for, and currently there are nine rooms.
A large quantity of modern first editions in fiction, though the 'modern' begins in the 19th. century. Recent highlights include:
3 separate 1st editions of 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell, 1st Canadian, 1st USA and 1st UK illustrated;
M.R.James 'The Five Jars'
Signed and inscribed copy of 'Sentimental Tommy' by J.M. Barrie

In the shop
Many of these titles are listed on Abebooks, but ten times as many are not. Similarly, we stock many current and classic literature paperbacks.
A fair amount of our more expensive material is not immediately available in the shop, but can be easily viewed if you ask. We accept credit cards, cheques, payments by Paypal, and of course we love cash!
