BOOKS FOR SALE: APRIL 2021

 

The books are from my own collection, so I only have one copy of each. My web site at www.soccerdata.com has an up-to-date list of unsold titles. The condition of each book is generally very good unless otherwise stated. Make me an offer if you don’t agree with my prices. Please note that these prices do not include postage. Contact me first by e-mail, phone or letter with the item numbers to see if they are still available, and I will quote you the postage at cost, by Royal Mail or Hermes. In general, single copies of a small hardback will travel in the UK for around £2. Large hardbacks and multiple orders (up to 10 kilos) will possibly need to travel by Hermes for £6.49.
