ADVICE ON HOW TO OBTAIN ‘BB’ BOOKS

 

It is a sad fact that books by ‘BB’ - Denys Watkins-Pitchford - can be very hard to find nowadays.  Many are now out of print, and some of those that can be hunted down are very expensive to buy.  There is now a world-wide demand for these books which has, of course, raised their selling price on the open market.

 

The BB Society is always very helpful in assisting the search for BB books and has a ‘recommended list’ of reputable booksellers that still stock some of his books:
