Second Hand Books Association

Booksellers Association of England & Ireland - Used Books - A Brief Overview

When Bob Smallwood and David Heathershaw were asked to take over the Biblion, London Bookfairs was established.  The two had been friends and neighbours for many years but it was the love of books that brought them closer together.  The Book List was an idea formed after one of their many trips together.

Second Hand Books

The concept of a guide was not new and many of the sellers and fair organisers approached were enthusiastic and gave them support.  The result was the 2015 edition featuring a Windsor Castle print on the front page and a hand drawn map on the back.

With over 50,000 books available to choose from, a copy of the new, rare, out-of-print or antiquarian book you require isn't far away. We have a wide range of subjects and invite you to search our book database. You no longer need to create an account to buy books from Biblion.

You enter your delivery and payment information into our secure server, Biblion sends you the book and your information is deleted automatically from our database.
