WELCOME TO RICHARDSMITHRAREBOOKS.COM
The purpose of this site is to list some of the stock which I’m not able display on my stall or at fairs. New items will be added irregularly, but as most of my stock is unlisted please contact me if you have a particular interest or want, either by phone or by email to email@example.com. I have fairly large reserves of maps and topographical views. If I can’t help, I may be able to suggest another source. I have been dealing in books and prints since the early 1980s, trading in a number of London locations, and am still buying compulsively.
I try to buy material that is in at least very good condition; I hope the catalogue reflects this. Describing the condition of a book often demands quite a lot of detail, whilst a map or a print, especially when illustrated, is a much simpler proposition. I aim to cite all but the most minor defects, and to use the images to show both good and bad points. All items are warranted original and as described. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me as soon as possible and I will be happy to refund the cost in full upon return. (For further notes on the terminology of condition, see the Information section of the site.)
All prints and maps are sent worldwide post free, unless they are required mounted, when postage is charged at cost. Postage on books is additional, again at cost, and I will provide a quote on request.
Occasional articles will also be published, and will appear below or in the Information section of the site.
