Thought I'd share this website I found today as it might come in handy for you who are looking for that special out of print book/second hand book/new book or just browsing.

http://www.booksandcollectibles.com.au/ ... gines.html

I have not checked them all out properly yet but like these two in particular:

http://www.bookshops.com.au/ this one contains second hand bookshops in Australia and it seems like most of them will send books overseas.

http://www.bookfinder.com/

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I use bookfinder all the time. some of the research texts my rabbit-trails take me on are really obscure, but bookfinder is the best resource for tracking odd oop manuscripts down.

Hi wishes09, welcome aboard.

I haven't used it a lot, but Fetchbook will search online sites for the lowest price available.
