Below is a list of my stock of old secondhand and antiquarian books on Barbados for sale.

Notes on Barbados books:-

One of the earliest histories of the island is Frere's 'A short history of Barbados' published in 1768.  Important later works include Poyer's 'The history of Barbados' published in 1808 and Schomburgk's 'History of Barbados' published in 1848.

Bajan Things is a new blog on Barbados history with some very good, well researched, articles.
