Welcome to Reid Books

We are an online bookstore specialising in antiquarian and historic technical books, with particular interest in the 19th and 20th century physical sciences and engineering. You can browse our catalogue by department or use the keyword search to look for items of particular interest.

Sadly, John Reid, the major partner in Reid Books, died in 2021, leaving a large collection of uncatalogued books. As an interim measure, we are posting images of his bookcases for potential customers to browse and then contact us for further information if any item is of interest.

So far, only a small number of bookcases have been photographed but more will follow over the coming months.

The bookcases can be viewed  by clicking the image or following this link.

If you would like further information about any of our stock please use the Contact Us link on the menu to get in touch. We are always happy to answer queries.
