Second-hand copies of Descent
With such a wealth of information contained in the pages of Descent, out-of-print editions have become much sought after. To help collectors and researchers, where possible second-hand copies are available to supplement the back issues in stock.
Availability of these varies a great deal. Some early and a few later editions are very scarce. Prices vary widely, according both to scarcity and condition – to a collector, creases or a stamped imprint would affect an issue's desirability, while clubs may only wish to have a 'reading copy' to place in the library. In short, expect prices higher than those for back issues – especially for copies in good condition – although sometimes a second-hand copy may be damaged and thus be cheaper than a back issue.
Contents lists of the main articles may be found by looking at individual issues.
Please note that second-hand stocks can and do change rapidly. Different copies of the same issue may be available at differing prices, depending on condition, so use a search to uncover any others. Also note that not all the second-hand stock of Descent is online: if you are looking for a copy in a different conditions, or one that is not online, please contact us to enquire.
If stock is available for all post destinations, selecting any set of options will allow you to place your order immediately.
If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, selecting your options may not allow an order to be placed, even though stock is available. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.
