M Richardson Rare Books

With the future of fairs uncertain at the moment, you can see a handful of our many books on this site. Better still, you can search most of the books we have in stock on our Abebooks storefront. We are constantly adding new stock online so do also contact us if you don't find what you want there. Copy this link: https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/StoreFrontDisplay?cid=50563488 If there are any of these that you'd like to see photos of or ask for more information on then please do get in touch. M. Richardson Rare Books was formerly known as Mr. Books Bookshop and located on Tonbridge High Street in Kent, England for over 12 years up until July 2017. The shop is still there under new owners so, due to the sale of the bricks and mortar side of the business, it made sense to change our name to reflect this change of direction. (And we had to because the new owner liked the name so much it went with the business sale!) We now trade mainly online and at PBFA fairs up and down the country from our new base nestling in the foothills of the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds. We also exhibit at Bloomsbury Book Fairs in London a few times a year, and occasionally have a small selection of fine books for sale at select antique centres, such as Hemswell, in Lincolnshire. Whilst we don't specialise in anything in particular we do lean towards certain subjects such as collectable modern fiction and children's books, and also have many fishing books and topographical books & ephemera. But really we just sell rare and fine books on many subjects. The stock is being constantly replenished so it's always worth visiting us at one of the fairs. We travel far and wide to purchase quality collections so please feel free to call us.

Empire Unity and Defence (Signed and dedicated by the author to his Mother)

Description

A truly remarkable copy of the first impression which is signed by the author, and dedicated to the author's mother, on the front fly leaf in ink pen and reads: "To dearest Mother with love from her son, the Author- John. 16.3.'34" and further later inscribed by the author's brother in light pencil simply: "AWF Fuller From Mother" There is a little toning to the end papers and mild foxing at the page block edge, fore edge, but this really is an amazingly well preserved copy. The dust jacket, having been wrapped until very recently in a brown paper covering, is in almost flawlessly clean condition and still showing the original price on the inner flap of 10s 6d net. JFC (Boney) Fuller is included in Mark Urban's book, "Generals Ten British Commanders Who Shaped the World" Some accolade indeed. A wonderful and unique copy.
