Showing items in Philatelic Books

Books on philately for sale.  I mostly stock out of print titles but act as agent for the British West Indies Study Circle and the British Caribbean Study Group.

Post and packing is extra.  Please note that for bulky (2kg +) overseas orders I can offer very cheap airmail postage as I have a contract with Royal Mail which makes the cost little more than for inland orders.
