I would imagine that some of the people coming for tomorrows celebration of the 70tth anniversary of Operation Dynamo will be considering visiting the secondhand bookshop and that they are most likely to be interested in the military and transport sections.
I have just photographed the stock in them, not easy to get everything in focus but I hope it is of some help to people, click on the link for the pictures of the books on the shelves today http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/510b/id14.htm
Prices of books in the bookshop start at 5p per book, I would say the average price being about £2.50 for a paperback and about £7 for a hardback, although some of our more collectable and scarce books are much more expensive.
The picture (click on it and then click on it again to make it big enough to read) above is from one of these collectable books, “Aide Memoire to the Military Sciences. Framed from contributions of officers of the different services, and edited by a committee of the Corps of Royal Engineers.”
Second Edition revised, enlarged and corrected. 3 volumes published between 1853 and 1862. viii and 545 pages; ii and 589 pages; ii and 800 pages. with numerous plates and wood-cuts. Tall 8vo. All three volumes rebound with marbled boards and marbled endpapers, maroon half-leather, with raised bands at spine and red leather labels with gilt titles.
I never know if this sort of post is seen as advertising, or just bringing to peoples attention another cultural facility in Ramsgate, anyway what you see is what there is.
Oh and just a reminder that we are closed on Thursdays and Sundays.
