We specialise in fine antiquarian and second-hand books with a strong interest in Natural History, particularly the New Naturalist Series. Please contact us if looking for a gift.

Our prices are always lower than other sites where our books are listed. If you are looking for a certain type of book click on the book tab on the left and then search by title, author or catalogue. The featured section is very useful if you are looking for something special. If you come across any problems in searching for a title please contact us via our email loe@loebooks.co.uk  or telephone us on 01566 782528. Offers always welcome and given serious consideration. We are not a formal shop but visitors are welcome by appointment. We are situated about 8 miles south of Launceston, close to Bodmin Moor. It is a beautiful part of Cornwall, so even if you do not find the book you are looking for a visit is worthwhile for the countryside alone!
