About Us


Tarrington Books was founded in 2007 by Shane Taylor and Sonja Bladt. We have quickly established ourselves as a reliable and economical supplier to book collectors and dealers throughout the world.

We are very aware of the concerns of customers when purchasing online. Not having the book in your hand can often make it difficult to decide whether to buy or not to buy. What is the condition *really* like? Is the description accurate? Will it get here safely? How long will I have to wait for it?

Our aim is to take the worry out of buying books over the internet...

Descriptions are always detailed and we try to point out every flaw that an item may have, to the extent that a book may often sound in worse shape than it really is. We would much prefer that your purchase is better than expected than the opposite.

Our packaging is second to none. We send our books to every corner of the globe and they are always packed to withstand the roughest of handling (because we know they often have to!)

Turnaround of orders is normally 1 working day - if for some reason this is not possible we will always email you to tell you why, and when the order will be sent. As soon as a book has been dispatched we send an email notifying you of the postage method and estimated delivery time.

And after all this - if you're still not happy with your purchase we also offer a full money back guarantee!
