Search Dealers' Catalogues

This site includes a list of dealers' catalogues - there are usually more than 100 to view (and at times over 100) though the number can vary as old ones are removed and new ones added.
There's a search facility on the catalogue page which allows the buyer to search the entire contents of all the PDF catalogues listed - so searches by title, author, publisher or any word in a catalogue are not only possible but make it that much quicker to find what you seek.  Read more.
  Please note that this search facility does not work on links to dealers' websites. So do send in a PDF version to gain the most from this service.
  Please mention where you found the title when ordering!

                    Sheppard's Confidential is published every Friday
