Our shop is closed - we will however re-open as soon as allowed.

At present our online sales are operating normally, this will continue as long as Royal Mail services are unaffected.

We are adding a lot of fresh stock to the website every day so please keep visiting our site.

IMPORTANT - We have now ceased buying books for the time being!

If you have a collection to dispose of you can still contact us but we will be unable to take matters beyond a possible expression of interest for the time being.

Oversea customers should note that the reduction in air flights and local restrictions are resulting in longer delivery times.

Mail to Italy & Spain is being significantly delayed.

Welcome to Martin Bott Bookdealers, one of the UK's leading dealers in secondhand and antiquarian Transport books & Ephemera since 1997, now at the Treasure Chest Bookshop in Felixstowe. This site gives details of our business and shop and has an extensive online catalogue of books (around 10,000 at present) available to buy now and which can be mailed anywhere in the world quickly and safely.

For over 35 years The Treasure Chest has been one of East Anglia's leading secondhand and antiquarian bookshops with a huge stock of over 50,000 books covering a very wide range of subjects. We pride ourselves on having good quality, well presented stock offering something for everyone at reasonable prices. We cover a wide range of subjects, especially Transport, Maritime, East Anglia, Military, History, Art, Sport, Music, Religion, Literature, Antiquarian etc. and a very large selection of low priced general Fiction (including Sci-Fi & Crime) and Childrens books.

Unlike many bookshops we DO NOT list most of our books on the internet, so we remain a paradise for the traditional browser and bargain hunter - so why not come and pay us a visit? And while you're here there are lots of other things to see and do in the Felixstowe area - see our links.

March 2019 - Lots more new stock just arrived:

Huge collection of Aviation titles (2000+)
800+ military Vehicle & Tank titles
Railways  -UK and overseas
