Mumford Books hard to find service

Do you need help finding a book that you really want, but can’t get hold of?

If so, you’ve come to the right place: I have decades of experience in rooting out books, magazines and prints for customers in the UK and worldwide.

I can provide book and prints sets, from the small Observer’s series to large volumes such as The London Illustrated News. Both whole sets and odd volumes are regularly selected by my customers.

My search service is free for one book, but I charge for multiple hard to find requests (see my scale of fees).

How the hard to find service works

Once I establish that the item you require is available, I will contact you to agree the cost of your order, including postage and insurance.

I will invoice you for the agreed amount. Invoices can be paid by PayPal or by personal cheque.

Items will be obtained and posted to you once payment has been received.

Any item found to be unsatisfactory may be returned within 21 days of you receiving it.
