Richard Gott Library Sale

August 14, 2019

Richard Gott is a former Latin America correspondent and features editor for the Guardian. A specialist in Latin American affairs, his books include Cuba: A New History, Guerrilla Movements in Latin America, The Appeasers (with Martin Gilbert), Land Without EvilHugo Chávez and the Bolivarian Revolution, and Britain’s Empire.

Richard has very kindly donated over 1,000 books from his personal library, across a range of subjects, but as would be expected, the collection has a particular emphasis on South American history and politics.

Housmans will be hosting a sale of these books, starting at 10am Saturday 17th August and finishing at 6pm on Sunday 25th August. New books will be put out continuously throughout the week.

As with all our book sales we are keen to keep the price of books as low as possible. The vast majority will be priced at £1 or £3, with a small selection priced at £5, or on rare occasion possibly higher.

Part of the donation includes a number of books in Spanish – these will be available for free, though we would ask you to consider making a donation at the till, with proceeds going to Haven Distribution, who provide books to prisoners.

Please do spread the word to those who might be interested.

Our sincerest thanks to Richard for this generous donation.
