Eighty-one of the interviews on this website have also been published in book-form in two volumes, entitled A Book of Booksellers and A Second Book of Booksellers.
A Book of Booksellers was first published in 2004 by Sheila Markham Rare Books, in a hardback edition limited to 500 copies. This edition is now out of print. In 2007 a paperback edition was co-published with Oak Knoll Press, of which copies are available at £15.99.
A Second Book of Booksellers was published in 2014 by Sheila Markham Rare Books, in a hardback edition limited to 500 copies. Copies are available at £20.
The first volume was described by Frank Herrmann as the most instructive book about the antiquarian book trade that has appeared for years, and Nicolas Barker found A Second Book of Booksellers just as full of the rich loam of character that made the first such capital reading.
