Showing items in West Indies Books - Bermuda

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

Collectors of Bermuda books can form a large and fascinating collection.  The history of Bermuda has been well documented by Wilkinson and there are a number of fine illustrated books, my favorite being Williams 'Bermudiana' which has the fine photo illustrations by Rutherford.

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.
