CLHS Donated Books ‘Shop’

Latest Catalogue

Books donated by members of the Society are sold to raise funds to assist with the running costs of the Society. Being donated, we are able to offer the books at modest prices.

Primarily relating to the local history of Cheltenham and its surrounding villages, and to Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds, there is also a smaller selection of national and general history titles. As well as widely published books, we have a number of more rarely encountered private and short-run research pamphlets and local history society publications.

Donations of books in these fields are always most welcome. I am always very happy to call and collect larger numbers of books or to receive small donations at Meetings.

A selection of books for sale will be brought to most CLHS Meetings. In addition, a descriptive catalogue listing of all books in stock may be accessed here. Depending on donations, this list will be updated approximately every two months.

Books may be purchased directly at CLHS Meetings or, at other times, by using one of my contacts listed below. Payment can be made by cash or cheque at Meetings or upon delivery. Cheques should be made out to the Cheltenham Local History Society. BACS payments are also possible; details upon application.

Deliveries can be made without charge locally; postage at cost will be charged if required. Pre-payment on invoice for the cost of book/s and postage would be appreciated for posted items.

If you are looking for a particular title that we do not have a copy of in stock, do send me the details and I will be happy to keep it in mind when browsing for books myself. It is, of course, impossible to guarantee to find such sought-for titles.

Thank you for supporting the work of the Cheltenham Local History Society by your donations and purchases.
