About the unused bargains page This page lists a selection of new books at bargain prices, from sources such as publishers' remainders and overstocks, and is usually updated early in each month.
The books listed on this page are offered at well under their recommended retail prices, but in most cases they are new and in as good a condition as you would find in a shop. They may show the kind of minor imperfections you would find in any shop-bought copy, but unless stated otherwise, they are offered as free of major defects. Please state if ordering as a gift and you will be advised in the unlikely event of the item not being in a suitable condition.
Most of these books are available only in limited quantities so they are offered subject to availability. They are offered by medievalbookshop only in the formats and editions stated: hardbacks have dustjackets except where stated otherwise. "In print" prices have been obtained from the publisher or a reputable on-line retailer such as Amazon: these are current retail prices recommended by the publishers and may differ from any prices printed on the books themselves, but they may not have been checked since first being listed on this page. A title is assumed to be out of print if no current price can be found readily. Books listed as "bargain price reprint" or similar may have a higher price printed on them, but have usually been specifically issued for sale at the lower "bargain" price and may not have been offered elsewhere at the higher price. Any of the books listed on this page may be available in different editions or at different prices from other dealers.
The descriptions of each book's content are taken from the publishers' blurbs or web sites and do not represent independent opinions.
See also the shop returns page which offers single copies of books stamped as "damaged"&nsbp;- usually they have little wrong with them and provide some excellent bargains!
You can use the contact links at the top of this page at any time with any queries you may have.
