We’re specialists in, and have extensive collections of, modern first editions, literature and crime, fine bindings, illustrated and private press books, with an emphasis on superior condition.  We take pride in the quality and condition of all our books and receive excellent feedback from our customers, not just for the books but for the care we take with packing and posting them so they arrive in as good a condition as they left us.

Only a small selection of books are online so please contact us or come into one of our shops (in Cheltenham and Hay-on-Wye) if you’re looking for something specific.

Mark Skipper has been dealing in rare and fine books for over 30 years.  He’s not only built up a large range of exceptional quality books in that time, but also the knowledge to advise on collections.

If you have books to sell do get in touch - we’re always interested.  Sometimes it’s the most unexpected book that turns out to be valuable - so if you’re clearing out used and old books give us a call.
