UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE NOT BUYING LADYBIRD BOOKS IN GENERAL AT THE MOMENT.... PLEASE ONLY CONTACT US IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO SELL A COLLECTION OF VERY RARE AND COLLECTABLE ITEMS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION
We are always pleased to hear from people with Ladybird books to sell, and have a reputation for always offering a fair price. The condition of the books is always important, for newer books we would be looking for books in very good or fine condition. The edition of the book is the other main consideration. Mainly we are looking for first editions or early editions, but with more popular items we are always interested in any edition. All books MUST have their spines intact. We do NOT buy Ex-Library copies normally.
Below are those editions which we are most interested in buying:-
