EARLY PENGUIN BOOKS FOR SALE




image





Oakburn Books have a number of early vintage Penguin Books for sale. This comes from the breaking up of a Penguin Book collection. We provide below lists of the books we have available for sale. They are listed in alphabetic and number order, starting with the MAIN SERIES, then PELICANS (Series 'A"), SHAKESPEARE (Series 'B') and so on. There are a few sets available, and where listed, they are for the complete set as described.
Edition: Unless stated otherwise are all Penguin first editions/first impressions.
Condition: We use the enhanced 'ABCD' grading system as follows:
A = Fine or Mint (new condition)
A- = Very good condition, slight blemishes or rubbing
B+ = A nice copy with only minor faults
B = Good condition, reasonably clean and tidy, may show wear
B- = Reasonable condition, may have rubbing or nicks to spine, minor staining or creasing
C+ = Alright, but may have faults, shows wear, or staining or creasing
C = Fair copy but with faults
C- = Will have faults, tears or splits, worn spine etc.
D = Poor condition, a reading copy, or a number filler

Postage: We will only charge for actual costs incurred, usually by Royal Mail or Parcelforce. Since rates may vary depending on weight and size of parcel we will confirm with you via email before posting.

Payment: Prices are given in pounds Sterling (GBP). We accept a variety of methods including payment by BACS, cheques (which require time to be cleared) and PayPal which is often the most convenient form of payment.

☆ but do remember these books can date back to 1935, and so are potentially over 80 years old - so please bear this in mind when you think of a book in very good condition.

At the moment we are in the process of compiling our lists - and this will take some time. Email us at Oakburn Books for orders, queries or to ask if we have a book in stock.
