Bon Anniversaire!

"What, no cake?!"

Today is of course Napoleon's 247th birthday.  I'm not going to attempt to write about the many books about the emperor - merely point you our selection of titles on the Napoleonic Wars here.

Something a Little Different

Sometimes in our travels looking for books to sell, I can resist picking up board games or RPG items.  We don't normally sell these on-line, but with our latest purchase I've decided to try out eBay.

It's an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Fighting Wheel gaming aid.  These were published here in the UK in 1981, but didn't take off - probably because they look fiendishly complicated.  Accordingly, only a run of 1000 of the Number 1 Wheel (Fighters, Paladins, Rangers and Bards) was produced.

The eBay listing is here.  There is no buy-it-now option on it.

Revolutionary Reading

To those of you who celebrate it - Happy Independence Day!

If the celebrations have prompted you to find out a little more about the Revolution/War of Independence, you can find some useful reading in our section on C18th Military History.

Good News for Overseas Buyers

Always been put off buying books from us because we're based in the UK?  Well there's good news for you.  The value of the pound has fallen significantly since the result of the Europe Referendum was announced this morning.  Now's the time to buy!

Didn't know we sold overseas?  If you want it (and will pay the postage), we'll send it anywhere!

Waterloo Day

Well it's the 201st Anniversary of the Battle that ended the Napoleonic Wars.  How to celebrate?  Why not buy one of the many books on the war (including some produced for the 200th Anniversary, but were too dear at the time!).

Quick, before they sell out!

"By God, Sir, I've lost my leg!"
"By God, Sir, sit down and read a good book!"

Father's Day

Look how well these two bond over a book

Father's Day as we celebrate it here in the UK is coming up.  Are you a father?  Have you a father?  Do you know a father?  All excellent reasons to buy a book!

Books make excellent gifts!

No sure what the Old Boy wants?  Buy him a credit and let him spend enjoyable hours looking through our stock for himself.
