Ardis Books News

22nd February 2008 - Ardis Books featured in the Sunday Telegraph. Last year I had a phone call from the author Joseph Connolly. His was a name I knew as I had read many of his novels, and before that the entertaining and informative Modern First Editions, which was a great source of information in my early days as a bookseller in the 1980s and sits on the shelf just a couple of feet away as I type this. Mr Connolly had been asked to write an introduction to a volume celebrating the 60th anniversary of The Folio Society last year, and approached me for some information and anecdotes about the secondhand market in Folio Society books. I was happy to oblige. It's an excellent article and a good introduction to the delights of the Folio Society.

5th May 2007 - The site has been revamped with the catalogue searches now fully interactive showing the very latest items offered for sale, updated every day. We've simplified the ordering process as well.

16th September 2005 - We are now offering a 'search' facility for wanted books. Let us know which ones you are looking for, and we will trawl the internet looking for them on your behalf. We will check availability and offer you the option on any items we find.

22nd May 2004 - Ardis Books featured in The Independent! Well it's nice to be asked for my opinion, and when I had a phone call from The Independent asking about book collecting, I was very happy to answer their questions. The result was published today.

10th May 2004 - Paypal have introduced a system enabling online payments by all major credit cards; you don't even need a Paypal account to use it. This seems better than most other schemes, and was easily integrated with our current database, so we are now pleased to offer full online buying facilities. Items are priced with four options for delivery to various parts of the world. Simply choose the option that applies to you, and follow the instructions on the secure Paypal site. Let us know what you think of the facility. This facility is restricted to items found through our search database, as this is updated each night. The static catalogues displayed are updated less frequently, although if you find an item you want you can then search for it using the search button (to check availability) and order online that way. Alternatively, you can order via email in the old way.

1st January 2004 - Welcome to our new lay-out. We have changed the colours of the site to make it easier to read; let us know what you think.

We have also improved the search facility, making it easier to hunt down the items you are looking for. Please take a look at our search page for more details. In brief, just enter a list of words separated by spaces. If they are found in the author, title or publisher of an item in the database, that item will be shown on the list of matches.
