Welcome to Malcolm BooksWelcome to the home of Malcolm Books, This site is under construction and working, but apart from items listed under Books which are from our stock listed on ABE books, on other pages the stock will come on slowly from Sept 2015, and hopefully a fair amount by the end of 2016.
It will for the first time, bring together a selection of the five different aspects of stock; Books Ephemera Photographs Antiques & Artwork
all on one site
It will include books and other items not on any other site including rare, unique books, ephemera and photographs not for sale anywhere else. As we strive to find unique items, that are hand written, one off's or now very rare.
Please note; From our research, some if not all our books on listed here and on ABE are offered for sale on other sites with the same description/ images but as they are our own books, this includes rare books and unique one off manuscripts etc. that no one else has. So please beware there are some fake/dis-honest websites, that try to sell items they have, and no right to offer to sell, and you as they do not have the items, you may never get the item unless they but it from us first.
So You can only purchase our stock from an abebooks site or here at www.malcolmbooks.co.uk .Here you can also purchase items not on abebooks, like most of the Ephemera, Photographs, Antiques & Artwork that are only here, on their own pages.
If you pay anywhere else, you will most likely never get the item. At least one site in Eastern Europe has most of our books with a much higher price, so you could pay them, and they may order the item from us (if we still have it, as some still list our sold items) to be sent to you. But you will be paying upto 30% more, with them making the difference. Or they may just keep your payment.
We have sold books & ephemera to many institutions around the world including The Royal Academy, The National Trust (UK & Scotland), Austrian Folk Museum, Libraries in the UK, US, Canada & Europe including Birmingham College, Yale University to name just a few.
This is a private property not open to the public as designed for storage and for the web stock. But When this site is up and working, within reason, and by prior arrangement an item or two can be taken to the Fairs we do. including Adams Antique Fair, Royal Horticultural Hall, Westminster, The Ephemera Society Fairs , The London Photograph Fairs they are all in London, and The Long Melford Book Fair. but please email us 1st as we do not attend every fair.
Shipping rates are not fixed, apart from postage
rates from the UK, as costs to many other countries are changing too often. We
do pack the item well. But if an item is very light and does not need special
packing the postage cost will be reduced. If the item is overweight their MAY
be a surcharge request.
All items priced over £200 will be sent via courier
( mostly UPS) at no extra cost, so an item with a cost price over £200, just pay economy
shipping and it will be sent via courier at no extra cost.
NOTE ; due to the site being new and the system, most scans of books
listed are only available

Please read our description carefully before ordering, if your are not sure please email and ask before ordering,
Any questions, please email, generally the reply
will be within 1 to 24 hours weekdays, but can be much longer during weekends. Thank You.
