We are one of the leading booksearch companies in the United Kingdom, supplying thousands of titles to individual customers and to institutions world-wide.


The ability to locate such a large number of titles is due to our having access to a variety of search methods. H.P. Bookfinders are not just an on-line booksearch service. As well as using the internet we will employ our extensive knowledge of the book trade and our bookscouts to meet your requirements.


A search will be undertaken for any of your specific needs, ranging from a single book title to collection-building requests on any subject. We are happy to search for any English language title, wherever published.  Our success rate is high. Over 70% of our customers are contacted with an offer of a located title within one month of their enquiry.


This means that we can individually tailor each search and offer titles at competitive prices.


Our twin aims are to supply your books:


as quickly as possible
as cost effectively as possible


There are no hidden costs, nor any obligation to purchase any title offered. Take a look at our terms of business page for more details about the comprehensive service provided.  Whenever you may need our service you can contact us by email, contact form or by phone or fax.


Where possible, please supply us with as much information as you have available for any requested title, including any special requests, such as edition or binding. If the book is needed by a specific date let us know and we will do our best. As well as an address it is a great help to have a telephone number because we may need to get in touch quickly or to speak to you directly.


Success! Message received.
