About Us

We are traditional antiquarian booksellers based on the edge of Exmoor in Somerset. Our well-known shop is open 7 days a week from 10.30 to 17.15 and we welcome buyers and browsers.

We are always interested in purchasing single items or larger collections of books.

We are one of the few booksellers who still regularly visit all parts of the UK and overseas and purchase from large or small collections, private individuals and institutions. We offer extremely competitive prices for suitable books, which compare favourably against prices achieved at auction where up to 40% of the proceeds of sale is taken by the auctioneers, and pay usually when we visit you.

We also offer a valuation service for probate, insurance and other purposes.

Please call us on 01398 323 169 or email us at info@rdbooks.co.uk to arrange a visit or discuss your requirements.
