Lists of vintage titles in stock,

Links to titles already photographed & listed at junkshopUK.
Updated Regularly.

All titles are hardback editions, unless otherwise stated.
I only stock books that I would have on my shelves at home. Many are in excellent vintage condition, others are fairly worn, but make up for it with great illustrations, interesting binding or are just classics with a homely vintage feel.
