Colin Neville: Woodbine Books
I specialise in fine art, private press, designer bindings and limited first edition books, and books on art and architecture, particularly those now out of print.
All the books I sell are first editions, unless stated otherwise, and many are limited, special or deluxe editions. This means they were printed in small numbers by independent fine press printers. Once out of print they become rare books, often sought after and collectable.
Art and Architecture Books
Art and architecture books predominate in the collection here; many are signed by the artist, and the fine press printers represented here often commission contemporary artists for the illustrative work. Wood engravings are a particular source of interest for me and a significant number of the art books I sell have wood engraved illustrations.
I am a member of the following book trade associations: Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA), Provincial Book Fair Association (PBFA), Fine Press Book Association (FPBA), and a member of the Private Libraries Association.
This means I abide by a professional code of conduct in relation to fair and knowledgeable market prices, accurate descriptions of books, efficient communication with customers, and secure mail packaging.
Because many of my books are rare and limited editions, I rarely sell them at book fairs, as they can get soiled and damaged in the process. This means that my stock remains in pristine condition. So if I describe a book as in 'very good' or 'fine' condition, it will be. If you are looking for these types of books in excellent condition and at a competitive price - you have come to the right place.
