Books for Sale

The time has come for me to sell some books to make more space. Please take a look and see if anything here appeals to you. They’re listed on Amazon and will be posted from the UK. I read many of them whilst researching Technobiophilia: nature and cyberspace and Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age. You’ll find an eclectic mix of the history and culture of technology alongside studies of nature and philosophy, plus a few interesting wild cards. Almost all are non-fiction. A few are unread because the titles are duplicates and/or I now have a digital copy. Most have been used to varying degrees, including some sorry-looking items that were already old when I got them but are worth listing because they’re hard to find.
