Below is a list of my stock of old secondhand and antiquarian books on Bahamas for sale.
There are a number of early guide books on the Bahamas which I could recommend. Mary Mosely's Bahamas hand book of 1926 is not uncommon and makes a good starting point for a collection. There are few early works on the Out Islands.
Postage and packing is extra but costs are kept to a minimum. On overseas orders I can offer cheap shipping per airmail M Bag service where total weight is over 1.5kg (3lbs) Cost will be advised after you have submitted your order and before payment is taken.
