Barely Read Books
Specialist Dealers For Over 25 Years
Barely Read Books Ltd is a specialist in W.E. Johns, aviation and childrens books.
I have long been a W.E. Johns enthusiast and began “Biggles and Co” (the well-known W.E. Johns magazine now renamed “Biggles Flies Again”) with the late John Trendler; at one stage I had a complete collection of W.E. Johns’ books. I was able to purchase from one collector all the prewar Oxfords in fine wrappers.From these came the excellent replica wrappers that you see listed on abe ,ebay and this website.These are true to the originals in all respects.
I have bought and sold books for 25 plus years and had a shop in Westerham for 10 of these, after which I began my eBay bookselling business. I sold over 3000 books on eBay with 100% positive feedback.
I now list weekly on abe,and have a near complete W.E.Johns collection to sell.This includes some stunning rarities.
I have now relaunched Barely Read Books with a new improved website.I hope that you find the website of interest and that I can be of service to you soon.
Due to our huge range of books, I store all titles in secure business storage away from home, thus there maybe a minor delay in answering your question/mailing your parcel. Although still aim to mail in 1/2 days.
