Showing items in West Indies Books - Jamaica

Below is a list of my stock of old secondhand and antiquarian books on Jamaica for sale.

A large library of books on Jamaica can be formed.  The bibliography of books on Jamaica by Frank Cundall is worth acquiring and fortunately a reprint has been published.  This book is not in stock at the moment though.

Postage and packing is extra but costs are kept to a minimum.  On overseas orders I can offer cheap shipping per airmail M Bag service where total weight is over 1.5kg (3lbs) Cost will be advised after you have submitted your order and before payment is taken.
