Showing items in West Indies Books

There is a surprisingly rich resource of books on the West Indies.  Only a few books on the Caribbean are commonly found in bookshops but there are an enormous range of titles in existence.  There is a fine online bibliography of West Indies books, mostly sorted by author, compiled by Don Mitchell at http://books.ai

Books are carefully described but if you have particular concerns please e mail enquires to me.

Post and packing is extra.  Orders are packed carefully and covered by my insurance.   Costs are kept to a  minimum.  Overseas orders are normally sent by airmail and orders for bulky items or multiple books can be sent very cheaply by M Bag Media mail, a heavily discounted airmail service.
