DOUG'S BOOKS JANUARY 2017-New Books from Overseas

Photo of Doug Nicholson Good Day Readers and Collectors !
A Happy and Prosperous New Year to You All !

Whilst on my unhappy sabbatical at the end of last year I made good use of my time by seeking out the numerous bookshops to be found in the more prosperous towns in Southern England. I walked many a mile laden with my findings. I have previously mentioned the "Cottage Bookshop"in a little village near me but there were many others. I also attended a discussion by an English author, Adrian Greaves who specialises in the Zulu War, in particular, Rorkes Drift and Isandalwana, and was able to obtain signed first editions of his and other books on South
African military history of that period.
Many of the books are the more difficult to find, hardcover first editions, of some of the current popular writers of readable fiction, such as Bernard Cornwell , Lee Child and the Harry Potter books by J K Rowling, and other interesting subjects.
I am attaching a list of these books, which are all in excellent condition with their dust jackets. As it may be sometime before I can get them on to my web site www.dougfindsbooks.com you are invited to contact me, either by phone, 012 361 5144, or e mail me on colnic@telkomsa.net, should use wish to purchase them or reserve them.Should you wish to buy them through Bid or Buy then let me have details and I will put them into Bid or Buy's catalogue. Same prices refer.

If I can assist in any way or you require information please let me know.
