Page design
  • Pages are designed with tables but without frames so as to work with most current browsers and operating systems.
  • Many pages on this site now use graphics: these are usually in the form of a scan showing the item offered for sale. In such cases text is included with the graphic for use by adaptive technology devices. However, pages linking to third party sites such as Amazon and Paypal are likely to incorporate graphics alongside their links.
  • All pages have now been re-written using cascading style sheets (CSS).
  • The site uses server side includes for repetitive elements, and javascript for the scroll bar links in the attic. If your computer has difficulty with any page, please send details using either of the contact links at the top of this page.
  • You can use your browser's "Increase Font Size" command under the "View" menu if you have difficulty reading the text.
  • Where PDF files are used, they only repeat text that is also available in HTML pages on this site; as these files can be viewed at up to 1600% of actual size, they should present no problems with legibility.
  • You can print pages out for easier reference. If you you have a laser printer and you turn off the "Print backgrounds" command in your browser's printing settings, the page should print out as black text on a white background.
  • By default the text on this site uses the Verdana font, which was designed specifically for internet use with on-screen legibility in mind. You can use your browser's preferences to override this, and to use any fonts you prefer for display.

Most pages in the used books sections of the site use a uniform colour scheme and format, with navigation links to the right-hand side of the screen on a green background.  The page backgrounds are set to pale blue on policy pages, white on the books for sale pages, and pale yellow on the information pages, all of which should allow sufficient contrast for legibility. The main text is set as black, while navigation links are set to take on your browser's default settings. There is no coding used to prevent you setting your own colour preferences on text and links. Most third party links are coded to open in a new window, leaving the medievalbookshop window available in the background.

The booklist pages in the attic use scroll bars for navigation, and these are written using javascript. If you have java capabilities turned off in your browser, you can still navigate these pages using the links hard-coded at the bottom of every booklist page.

The colour scheme in the press notices section is different to indicate that books are listed there for information only and are not held in stock by medievalbookshop.


The medievalbookshop web site and all of its mailouts and communications are written in UK English. Due to the high cost of translation work, it is not possible to correspond in other languages.

Technical difficulties

You can get in contact using the email link at the top of this page to send full details of the problem. This isn't a 24-hour service, but you will get a response as soon your email is received. Please check first to ensure that the problem is not being caused at your ISP or by any settings on your own computer. Bear in mind that web traffic may be especially heavy at certain times of day, either at your ISP or worldwide, and this may slow down reception on your PC.  If you are not receiving replies from medievalbookshop, please check the spelling of the email address you are using. Technical difficulties do sometimes prevent successful email communication with certain addresses, so you are welcome to use the conventional mail link at the top of this page.
