I have been a nearly full time bookseller since the mid 2000s working from home in Bristol. I concentrate on books on railways, motoring, aviation, maritime, industrial history, canals & inland waterways, topography, interesting ephemera, official publicity of the British railway companies, the Beatles & other groups from the 1960s and interesting ephemera. I sell on ABE, on eBay under the moniker 'mr.publicity' and at book and transport collectors' fairs. I issue occasional catalogues on my specialisms and in advance of book fairs. I keep a modest stock of quality material which is constantly changing - I spend a good deal of my time travelling around the UK seeking out and acquiring new stock! My website is
