For over 25 years, John Knott Books has specialized in fine first editions of popular literature, with an emphasis on science fiction, fantasy, supernatural and horror, mystery & detective fiction. In addition, we offer pulp magazines, ephemera (such as manuscripts and letters), as well as signed books, limited editions, award winners, and books in all areas of popular fiction.

WWI and WWII books that are illustrated, cartoon, propaganda, or children’s, as well as magazines, and other ephemera, is our latest area of interest. See our "about us" page for information on our specialist, Warren Bernard.

Our stock is primarily available on the website and at book fairs, but we do welcome direct sales to customers at our premises by appointment only. We are always interested in purchasing books. Let us know what you have. While we highlight these areas we do not limit ourselves to them.
