Academic Book Collection Academic Book Collection, founded in 1982, is an international mail order company offering titles from British and American university presses and trade publishers, the majority of which are discounted by up to 75 per cent and exclusive to us. For the most part, these books are publishers’ excess stocks in pristine condition and can be found elsewhere only at their full prices. We also sell newly published books and a small range of CDs and DVDs at below their advertised cost, as well as selected remainders.

This website includes all items in our current printed listing, titles in smaller quantities from earlier issues and those with stock levels too low to include in our mailed catalogue, which reaches more than 200,000 addresses annually. Prospective buyers who do not wish to order online can request a copy of our printed catalogue on our Homepage or use the Easy Order Form. The website is intended for individuals only; libraries and institutions should fax or send their orders with a purchase order reference. Our Poole distribution service aims to process and mail all orders within 48 hours of receipt."
