I have been selling on abebooks since 2002, after many years dealing in a very small way to finance my own book collecting. I specialise primarily in history of science, medicine, psychology & human sciences, philosophy, linguistics, mathematics and selected works on religion, though recently my poetry holding has considerably expanded. My catalogues also include general history, politics, and some poetry. Regarding antiquarian (pre-1850) works I am less selective. The stock, currently around 5,300 titles, includes numerous works in German, French and other European languages. As a former academic historian of psychology, often involved with historians of science and medicine, I have a good working knowledge of these fields and what is likely to be interesting or unusual. Regarding Psychology, I am slowly listing my library hitherto in the Centre for the History of Psychology at Staffordshire University. I take care to ensure that all books are well packaged individually, usually in bubble-wrap and sent in bubble-wrap lined envelopes. I welcome inquiries and can send visual images of works on request. I have recently begun adding images of books which lend themselves to this, the quality of these is alas somewhat varied and colour may be slightly inaccurate, sometimes being brighter or lighter than the original (especially a 'red shift' from some shades of brown). Automatically supplied images are still given for some items, but these can be incorrect. I am also happy to consider offers of books in my specialist fields for purchase. Stock is browsable under 45 separate sub-catalogue headings (see below). Graham Richards Books operates from a private address. The quoted postage is for books weighing in 0.5-1 kg range, cost will be adjusted as appropriate if necessary when an order is processed. Please note that 'Priority' for non-UK destinations in fact refers not to speed of delivery but to rate for 'trackable and signed for' - for Europe this is currently typically about £17-£19 and for rest of the world £21-25, but I have now set them at £15 and £20 respectively. Most U.K. books will however be sent £1.80 2nd class unless significantly over weight although can be sent 1st class if requested for £4. Note on Catalogues. The 'Psychotherapy, Psychiatry, Psychpathology' catalogue began as a sub-set of that on 'Psychology & Human Sciences' although works on sex, gender, crime, demography and sociology remain in this for the time being. All entries in the pre-1850 catalogues are also now in the relevant subject listings. Also note that the 'Psychotherapy, Psychiatry, Psychopathology' listing includes works by eminent figures and their followers which apply their theoretical approaches to other topics(e.g. Freudian literary criticism).
