Crask Books (formerly SMS Books) was formed out of my John Buchan collecting habit some 15 years ago. Through a series of unexpected events we became, some 9 years ago, the largest dealers in the world of books by and about John Buchan and his family. The aim is to keep as wide a range as possible but, because of the extreme rarity of some of his works we can never have everything that was written by JB.

September 2021 ~ A few new John Buchan books Hello everyone The usual information about new stock is attached; th list also includes a few books which, for one reason or another, have never been made known through one of my newsletters. As usual, there are the rare and the not so rare and there are books by JB, with a contribution by JB, about JB and by members of his family. The usual ordering instructions are at the foot of this email. This will be the last newsletter before the John Buchan Society AGM and annual dinner over the first weekend in October and I hope to see many of you there - doesn't it seem an awfully long time since we last met? I will be providing a bookstall once again, with books covering the theme of the weekend (Midwinter/Dr Johnson/Jacobites), books published 100 years ago (and published in 1920 in view of the missed AGM last year) and lots of bargains as well. Of course, there is also the very congenial social side of the weekend. I'm looking forward to it and this year I have less than 20 miles to travel. If there are any books you have been looking for or want to order for me to bring to Derby please get in touch a.s.a.p. Please click on September to view the list.
