. . . Collectors and Hoarders of Old-fashioned Children's Stories


This page lists wants from Chocs-style collectors in New Zealand. We've limited each collector to five entries.

Each book wanted is listed by author, then title. Collector's name is followed by condition/edition requirements and then maximum price.



How to Use the Wants List

* Contact us to list your wants here and to update your listing. Please do keep your listings up to date.

* Contact the person listed (just click on their name) if you have a book to sell. The e-mail will be sent to Beth and I for forwarding - thus preventing unscrupulous (!) dealers using the pages to harvest customers.

* Remember, you may have exactly the book that somebody is looking for but the price range (book price plus postage) might not be quite right for the person you contact. It is possible that your offer may not be accepted.

* Key to the abbreviations: p/b paperback; h/b hardback; d/w dust wrapper.
