Empires throughout history have risen, flourished, faltered, decayed, and died. As Kipling, bard of the British Empire, predicted at the zenith of Queen Victoria's reign: Lo, all our pomp of yesterday is one with Nineveh and Tyre . Thence our name. We focus on books that speak to the experience of Empire, whether through history, biography, politics, philosophy or fiction. We specialize in works representing the British Empire of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. However, our interest and inventory also features a wider variety of works that speak to the precocious nature of civilization. We are collectors as well as dealers. We take pride in helping fill the spaces on your shelves. Any books purchased from us will be accurately represented and securely packed for safe shipping. We welcome hearing from buyers and non-buyers alike, and are happy to answer your questions as best we can.
We guarantee the condition of every book as it's described on the Abebooks web sites. If you're dissatisfied with your purchase (Incorrect Book/Not as Described/Damaged) or if the order hasn't arrived, you're eligible for a refund within 30 days of the estimated delivery date. If you've changed your mind about a book that you've ordered, please use the Ask bookseller a question link to contact us and we'll respond within 2 business days.
