Ecat 198 April 2022

I can accept payment by Visa, Mastercard and American Express or by direct British bank transfer. I can accept international bank transfers, but regret I will need to charge for costs imposed by banks for these transactions - typically a minimum of $30 or £15 (there is no such cost for British banks). I no longer accept cheques.

Prices exclude postage and packing which are charged at cost. All books are insured in transit.

If books sell out and I need to re-stock, prices and descriptions may alter, but current prices will be shown on the main pages of the website.

Part One - New acquisitions and imminent arrivals of new publications.

Unless stated otherwise, all books are hardbacks or paperback originals, in fine condition and are first impressions of first UK editions. A fuller description will gladly be supplied on request. Most titles in this section are on view at timkcbooks.com

Entries with asterisks indicate that these titles are being shown for the first time, shown as signed for the first time or shown for the first time in Part One.
