If you love maps and books then Jeremy’s Books is the place for you. 

Here at Jeremy’s Books we have a huge selection of maps and books for you to choose from.

There are around 5,000 maps listed in our online shop, which is about half our usual stocks, with new titles added regularly. If you don’t see what you want you can always drop us an email and ask.

Many items in our online shop don’t yet have images. If you want to see images and descriptions where there aren’t any please just drop a note to info@jeremysbooks.co.uk or give us a call on 01598 763531.

We also buy old OS maps and other similar items. Just give us a call on 01598 763531 or drop us a note using our contact form describing roughly what you have and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Where to Buy New OS Maps and Books

We are now recommending Hive for new maps and books (they also sell CDs and vinyl).

We love Hive because have a wonderful policy of donating a percentage of what you pay to a bookstore local to you. You can also nominate a different store if you wish to.

Hive use all cardboard packaging, give free, fast delivery and their prices are excellent – comparable with anything else you might find online.

We do receive a small commission if you use our link to buy from Hive.

We have a similar arrangement with Stanford’s, who have a massive range or maps of all kinds as well as a vast array of travel books and guides. Visit Stanford’s.
