Calluna Books - Sales and Wanted

Calluna Books: books for sale ~ books wanted ~ how to order

Our stock lists are available here as pdf files which can be viewed onscreen or downloaded on to your computer to be read later. The lists are updated periodically as our stock and wanted lists change. If you have any problems accessing the pdfs please contact us and we can send them in another format. Check out our 'News & Offers' page for an update on any events that we may be attending and any special offers/reductions that we may offer from time to time. Postage extra.

Are you looking for a particular title?

With a regular turnover of stock, we are happy to look out for that elusive title that you are searching for and we can also carry out book searches. Wants lists are welcomed and if a book is found it will be offered with a price, including postage, but with no obligation to buy.



Our stock list is divided into sections and books are listed with details of the author, title, year of publication/edition and a brief assessment of their condition. All books are in a nice condition, largely reflected by their age, and many recent titles are 'as new'. Generally previous owner’s signatures/addresses, gift inscriptions, bookplates and price clipped dust wrappers are not noted. Details of the books contents are not listed, so if you would like more information about this, or if you have any other questions about any books of interest, please contact us.

REDUCED STOCK LIST (*** to clear - offers welcomed for bulk purchases ***)

From time to time we remove items from our main stock list and offer them at reduced prices. In addition we often take in items which have a low value and offer them directly here rather than through the main stock list. These books will be complete and in at least a good readable condition.

Master Stock List



We are selling a number of FLORA related books on behalf of a friend. These books are not held in our storeroom so it may take a day or two to answer any questions you may have about them or to get them ready for posting out.

Reduced Stock List

Books wanted ~ do you have books to sell?
We are always looking to buy in stock covering all aspects of natural history and can offer a cash price or a

part-exchange value. We would be pleased to receive a list of any books you have to sell either with your asking price

or we can make an offer. Books should be in a very good/fine condition with dust wrappers where issued. For larger collections we can usually travel to view / collect - for smaller collections we make an allowance for delivery.


Bird reports & journals for sale
We only hold a very small stock of bird reports/journals but are pleased to be able to offer a link to Steve Holliday’s ‘Bird Reports’ catalogue. If you wish to purchase any items from it please contact Steve directly - his contact details are in the catalogue.
