About Us

Islington Books is run by Des Calton and he has been buying and selling books for 25 years. Des took early retirement from his main job in 2010 to build up the book business. Islington Books have been selling used and rare books on the Internet via Amazon for several years until this became very complicated last year due to their tax payment to the UK. Now (with a lot of help from his son at SNAP! Marketing) they have decided to set up their own website IslingtonBooks.com.

We stock a huge selection of  Army Books, Navy Books, Air Force Books, World War One Books, World War Two Books and lots more. We specialise in military books but also have a large mixed selection of other books at very low prices.

Throughout the year Islington Books also attend outside events such as, county fairs and shows, military fairs and re-enactments.

Because we have such a large amount of stock that is currently changing, if you cannot find what you are looking for, get in touch with us as we either may have it in stock, or know where to get it.
