Kestrel Books

How to Shop & Order

We have over 10,000 individual titles available in our store. To catalogue all of them online would be impossible for us, but never fear: a selection of around 1100 of our most unique books are searchable online using ABE Books.

If you wish to order directly from Kestrel Books, just email us the description of the book and the book inventory number, along with your shipping address. We will advise you of the shipping cost. We are happy to hold the book pending your purchase for up to 5 days at your request.
