Secondhand and Rare Books for Sale

Welcome to the Monks Hill Books website. I am based on the Hampshire-Sussex border at the foot of the South Downs - the banner above is part of the view from my garden. The tower is the folly called the Racton Monument, and the hill is Walderton Down.

All the books for sale may be viewed and purchased on-line. The books on the site are divided into categories, which are listed in the column on the left of the page (some books fall into more than one category). I give at least one photograph of each book, and often a further photograph of the dustjacket "blurb" or the contents page. For more information on the descriptions of the books please click on the "Book descriptions" tab above.

Please bear in mind that I normally have only one copy of each book, and once it is sold there is no guarantee I will ever find another one . . . . . If you want to buy a book, click on "How to order".

The price of the book includes postage within the United Kingdom. If you are ordering three or more books, a postage discount will be applied. If you are ordering more than one book from outside the United Kingdom, please e-mail me at sales@monkshillbooks.co.uk, and I will quote you a price including postage.
