W. J. Rawkins (Military Books) 1974

smallflag best

In 2008 I ceased trading as a book dealer after close to fifty years and concentrated on writing and illustrating the re-issues of the 'Armies and Uniforms of the Napoleonic Wars' series of e-books.


We still however, acquire a few books every year which are surplus to our research and archive requirements and until recently have simply passed these on to other book dealers for resale.  


As the numbers of surplus books are very small it has been decided in response to customer requests that for a short trial period a selection of our surplus military books and prints will be offered directly to interested existing clients via this page.  


There will only ever be a very small selection of items available, duplicates and spare copies from our research files and archives; we do not intend to return to offering a full catalogue of books and are unable to provide a book search service.  Our postage / carriage terms for most books will remain unchanged from those offered previously.
