It’s just not cricket – well, actually it is.

I’ve just bought a couple of boxes of old cricket books, to add to my previously empty cricket page. I’ll add them on there as I sort through them. Cheers, Rick

No news is…well, it’s no news

I’ve been quiet, mainly because real life and work keeps getting in the way of my hobby i.e. this web-site. I’m still here though. I’ve got more books than ever – I just haven’t had time to list time on this site!

A A Milne

Unusual items from the classic childrens author. Firstly a set of 4 miniature editions of Winnie-the-Pooh stories published in the 1970s. I’m selling these together as it would a shame to split them up. Cute little things. Also, 2 much larger sheet music books published in the 1920s – 14 Songs from When We Were […]

Mills – A Boon?

Whilst we’re not the greatest lovers of romantic fiction here at Rick’s Book Basement, we cater for all tastes, and so I decided to purchase some Mills and Boon! Not just any old Mills and Boon, but hardback editions from the 1960s and 70s – I bet some of you didn’t even know Mills and […]

Hark the Heraldry

I’ve just obtained a First Edition (undated, thus 1906) of Complete Guide to Heraldry by A.C. Fox Davies. Not in the best condition, but this weighty tome FEELS like a proper old book! It’s on the General Non-Fiction page. Cheers, Rick

Plays and Travel

They’re coming in too fast, the web-site canna take anymore. I’m struggling to get everything listed before more books come in. Please be patient. I’ve just had some play texts (Pinter, Berkoff), and some travel and language books – including a superb photographic book of Paris, an equally superb book of Amsterdam watercolours and an […]

Aviation and Nautical magazines

I couldn’t pass up this unusual collection. Aviation (OK then, plane-spotter) books and magazines (e.g. Aircraft Illustrated) from the 70s and 80s. Also magazines such as Sea Breezes and Ships Monthly from the 60s to the early 90s, including some complete years. All in good to very good condition. Should I have a new page […]

Antiquarian Purchases

I’ve recently bought a dozen or so mixed antiquarian books, including early 20th century Charles Dickens, and some 50+ year old Enid Blyton, Edgar Wallace and Hammond Innes. Also a couple of old technical books. Once I’ve had a good look through them, I’ll create new ‘Antiquarian’ pages under Fiction and Non-Fiction. Or maybe a […]
