Showing items in West Indies Books - Dominica

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

Notes on Dominica books:-

The earliest history of the island is Thomas Atwood's 'History of Dominica' published in 1791.  There are some fine early guide books to Dominica produced in the late C19th promoting the island to European settlers.

There is a new website with much information on the history and culture of the island which I am pleased to recommend, apart from the suggestion that you purchase books from Amazon:- http://www.lennoxhonychurch.com

Another new website features music from the island  and is well worth a look http://www.sunsworksmedia-uk.com

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.
