M Richardson Rare Books

With the future of fairs uncertain at the moment, you can search most of our books on our Abebooks storefront. We are constantly adding books online so do also contact us if you don't find what you want there: If there 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 in the frozen north of NE Lincolnshire! We also occasionally exhibit at Bloomsbury Book Fairs in London, at the Royal National Hotel. We also have a small selection of fine books for sale at a few select antique centres 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. We 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.

Julius Caesar Man, Soldier and Tyrant


A fine+ bright copy of the second impression which is signed by the author's younger brother, Lionel, in blue pen and reads: "This is John's last book, he must have written it when he was 85, a great age to write a book of this nature, Lionel Fuller" Presumably therefore the book was published postumously. The book is bound in fresh looking blue cloth boards which have crisp gilt title lettering to the spine. The pages are lovely and clean throughout. The dust jacket is not price clipped and is in bright, unfaded condition. 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.
