The categories of secondhand aviation books that I sell include, Both World Wars, "Lighter-than-air" (balloons & airships), biographies of airmen & accounts of famous flights, Luftwaffe history, airlines, Royal Air Force history, gliding, parachuting, technical (on aircraft, engines, instruments etc), directories & guides, event & display programmes, brochures, aviation poetry, aviation medicine, aeromodelling, meteorology, aviation fiction, series-published books and British & foreign aviation magazines.

I deal mainly from home, publish 2 printed catalogues per year but also
sell at Old Warden flying days. Wants records are kept and visitors are welcomed,
by appointment, at the "Bookhouse". I sell to customers world-wide
and payments can be received by personal cheque in most currencies or by Credit
card payments to my PayPal account.
Big magazine opportunity
From the family of a late test pilot and airline pilot there is available, at affordable special prices, a large collection of English language magazines, mostly from the period 1950-1990, including several long runs from the magazine’s starting date, mostly in fine condition and many in official binders. The objective is to find them a good home and top prices are not sought. Titles include;- Aeromodeller (binders + loose), Aeroplane Monthly (binders + loose), Air Britain Military Air Review, Digest, Aeromilitaria & Archive, Aircraft Illustrated, Air Extra, Airfix (large run in binders), Air Forces Monthly, Air International, Air Pictorial (long run in binders), Aviation news (both types in binders), Esso Air World, Flight (1966-1971 bound + many other years loose), Flypast (Key Publishing; binders + loose) + Flypast (Merseyside Soc), Interavia (binders + loose), IPMS Magazine & “The Masgazine”, Planes/Wingspan (loose), Plastic Kit Constructor, Radio Modelling, R/c Modeller, r/c Scale Aircraft, RAF Flying Review & F.R.International, Meccano Magazine (small version from 1970s), R.Aeronautical Soc Journal (bound + loose), Scale Aircraft Modelling (large run in binders), Scale Modeller, Shell Aviation News (loose), Take-off (in binders), Warplane (bound)..
