ABOUT BAKERS BOOKS



A member of the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association, I have been a nearly full time bookseller since the mid 2000s working from home in Bristol. I concentrate on books on transport (mainly railways), industrial history, maritime, topography, sport, the Beatles & other groups from the 1960s and interesting ephemera. I particularly specialise in Bradshaw's guides & official publicity of the British railway companies. I sell on ABE, on eBay under the moniker 'mr.publicity' and at book and transport collectors' fairs. I keep a modest stock of quality material which is constantly changing - I spend a good deal of my time travelling around the UK seeking out and acquiring new stock.



I am ably assisted by Louise Hughes, an experienced researcher who joined the team in early 2014. As well as compiling my catalogues, Louise is responsible for ABE & eBay listings and providing invaluable assistance at book and collectors' fairs.
