Welcome to K Books Ltd

The downside of the internet for books is that there usually is no personal contact between the bookseller and the book buyer.

We hope to remedy this by offering a bespoke and customer focused service.

Sue and Barrie Kaye started K Books in 1964 and have a large stock of used and antiquarian books, antique portraits and maps. After 56 years, they are embracing modern technology and selling their wares to the world.

General second-hand books on all subjects ranging from agriculture to zoology including art, literature, 1st editions, natural history, gardening, fine bindings, classics and paperbacks.


Large stock of antique portraits of important personages, royalty, politicians, Vanity Fair ‘Spy’, literary figures, sporting characters and many more.

We have several thousand old and nicely bound books in leather which can be hired for television or film ‘props’. We also sell these by the yard or metre if you’re looking for a scholarly and intellectual background for your online Skype and Zoom meetings – they do look rather ‘classy’.

Interesting stock of original antique engraved views of topographical scenes in Britain and overseas, which are well presented, mounted and ready to frame.

Use our contact form here. You can also browse all our stock via the ABEBooks book site.

If you find an any of our items listed on ABE and would like to see what it looks like, please e-mail us and we’ll happily send you a scan of it.
