nature and pets books

The remnants of an old private collection, mostly on birds but also on other animals, flora and ecosystems. Most book are inscribed with the previous owner’s name on the inside of the cover. The books are described in detail and individually priced lower than those available on the internet; buyers of more than 2 books will get a further discount. Due to the weight of books, postage has to be paid by the buyer, unless collection or delivery can be arranged in or around Galway. As the ad requires a price, the €10 shown is just to get a correspondence going. Once you make an offer, we can negotiate the price of the books you are interested in. Happy browsing:
