NEW Catalogue 150 Summer Sale of books about Churchill - Ready for download
I presently have over 100 feet of shelving holding over 1000 books about Churchill. For years I have tried to be a full service Churchill supplier, offering not just pricey first editions (There are lots of dealers out there doing that) but everything from LP records to Jigsaw puzzles. But sales are slow on may of these older books, and I need the shelf space, so here is a catalogue of over 200 books at bargain prices including free shipping. If you buy 20 or more books, most hardcovers are only $5.00 and trade paper only $3.00 each, with US shipping included. This is part 1, covering books published 1905-1969. Part 2 will list books from 1970 to the present. Click here to download, or you can request a printed copy.
Another large collection arrives
We recently purchaes a large collection of Churchill material and it was delivered vis the PODS system (Portable On Demand Storage) This is basically a smaller version of a sea container which was dropped in the driveway for me to unload. Here are pictures that show the POD being delivered and then the boxes stacked in the warehouse, blocking access to all else. The large flat is a Churchill framed print.
The collection is heavy on modern books, ceramics, and coins/medals. It shoul be good for 2 or more catalogues.I mailed my taxes off to the accountant on March 19th, so will now be able to resume listing more Churchill books.

Big Churchill Book Collection arrives 10 September, 2013
I have just received delivery of a massive collection. It includes every edition of all the books by Churchill, with scarce dustjackets going back to 1920. On nearly all the books, the condition is fine. I will commence the dispersal of this collection with Catalogue 145 later in September.
Guide to Books by Churchill
highly popularfeature of this site begins with a checklist
of all the book length works by Churchill. Each title on the
list then links to a page about that title with a brief discussion
of the various editions, with a colour photo of each of these
editions. Clicking on any of these descriptions or pictures
will then give a current listing of copies of that edition
in inventory, with the usual description and colour illustration.
We have without question the largest stock of Churchill material
anywhere. There are over 5000 items in stock, covering the
whole range of Churchill collecting:
We do not simply have a copy of each title by Churchill; there
is usually a shelf or more for each title. MARLBOROUGH has
14 shelves, overflowing onto the floor. This enables us to
turn "wants lists" into satisfied customers.
