All the books are currently in Belgium. If you can wait then I can coordinate the delivery of books when I am in the UK, if not postage and packing costs will be correspondingly more expensive (although probably not as much as they are via ABEbooks!).

State schools interested in multiple copies of books should contact me directly for preferential terms.
