My family background is in Bookselling. I started working for my parents as a Saturday Assistant at the age of 14 years in 1967. On leaving school I worked for Dillons University Bookshop in the Antiquarian and Secondhand Dept. learning Academic Bookselling in the heart of Bloomsbury now part of Waterstones . I left Dillons in 1987 to establish Handsworth Books, freelancing for Remainder Wholesalers during the week and at weekends selling Secondhand Books at Book Fairs, such as those run by the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association which I joined in the early 1990's.
I Buy and Sell Secondhand Academic and Scholarly Books primarily in The Humanities.
Private Premises Mail Order Only.
