About us

Washburn Books was born when I offered to sort out my late friend's book collection, which included many books belonging to her late father and consisted of many pre-1950's books on rural life and travel, as well as many literary texts and biographies. I started to catalogue them and then re-discovered the world of out of print fiction and non-fiction books, which appeal to so many enthusiasts around the world.


Since then I have been busy seeking out interesting books for my shop. I now specialise in out of print and first edition fiction, biography, travel, art, religion and philosophy while carrying a stock of general non-fiction in all categories.
