to our renovated web site. This is the first step toward a major reconfiguration of our online services – granting, in the fullness of time, complete access to our stock on-offer, and providing online ordering and payment.

The previous update of the site introduced a 'back' button (top-left after your first click), requested by some customers.

We no longer publish and send out printed lists. Pdf versions, however, will be generated directly from our database of over 55,000 book records.

The underlying structure of our site remains more or less the same and is still somewhat eccentric in its design and functionality. Now it has a modern ‘front end’ that should adapt and respond to a wide variety of devices and browsers. The site provides speedy access to details for all the books that have been included in our last four lists, and for many more books from our special topic sections going back many years.

Site search is also back. Please search keywords from titles and authors in the search box above and click ‘Search’ for a details of what is possible.

Regeneration and Ming Dynasty Colour-Printed Erotica

We are pleased and excited to be able to offer our customers two major new publications which have been produced under the auspices of our founder, Christer von der Burg. Regeneration was item 26/METP02 in our List 202, and Ming Dynasty Colour-Printed Erotica is item 17/VDBMD1 in the List 203. The linked images immediately below will take you to pdf versions of leaflets detailing these two magnificent, limited-edition publications.

We look forward to your orders.
