Photo of Doug Nicholson Dear Readers,Collectors and Customers All,

I have finally made it into the book-world of 2018 !
What with bronchitis/pneumonia and a losing argument with a slab of concrete paving,I live to fight another day. A particular apology and thanks to those of you who may have suffered some inconvenience during my enforced absence and a particular thanks to my dear daughter Imogin for keeping the wheels turning !
Apart from all that...A very happy and healthy New Year of 2018 to you all!!!

As usual I have accumulated an array of different books for you to contemplate....and there are more to come !
Africana still constitutes the greater part of my collection
but collectable fiction and overseas publications seem to be in greater demand. Scroll on and have a good look, many of the books are already on my web-site www.dougfindsbooks.com.I am including them as quickly as I
can. In the meanwhile by all means contact me direct and I will supply you direct or can add them to my website which Bid or Buy can pick up quickly.either on colnic@telkomsa.net or 012 361 5144.
