Darts Bookshop & Books Wanted

Welcome to my Darts Bookshop.

Books Below you can download my current list of new and second-hand darts books, DVDs and videos I have for sale. There are also books on pubs and pub games in the list and some on brewing for those whose interest goes beyond the sport of darts. I travel around England a good deal and am always on the lookout for darts books so my stock is constantly changing.

Any books ordered must be paid for in advance in pounds sterling either by a cheque drawn on a UK bank or via PayPal. (At the time of writing my PayPal account is being set up and will be available shortly.)  In the meantime potential customers outside of the UK should contact me about payment arrangements.

To place an order, please contact me at I will check my stock and then confirm availability. Please note that postage and packing costs are extra so please do not send any money until you have heard from me.


In some cases, an exchange might be possible, for example, swapping one book that I need (or that you advise me of and I had no idea existed) or one that I have been looking for for ages. The latter are few and far between these days (see below)

In other cases I have been known to accept darts programmes or darts magazines (excluding Darts World) or other memorabilia, in exchange for a book that I have for sale.

Any problems or questions, please contact me.


If I do not have the book you require, I can undertake a darts book search for you. Just let me have the details and I will see what I can do. If the search is unsuccessful, then your contact details and those of the book you require will be kept on file until such time as I find the book or you tell me that you have beaten me to it and that my search should cease.


As a Darts Historian, I am always on the look out for books, booklets and pamphlets that I need to fill those important little spaces on my bookshelves.

If you have any dart books for sale that you think I might be interested in, please drop me a line but, in the meantime, here are three works published ‘across the big pond’ that have eluded me to date:

Author Title
Bob Leeming International Darts (1993)(Possibly a Canadian publication)

If you have a copy of this book either for sale or exchange, I would be pleased to receive details from you.


I also collect darts books published in languages other than English. (I sit and pretend to be able to read them when really I’m only looking at the pictures!) Seriously though, please send me details of any such books you may have and let’s see if we can arrange an exchange.


If you are publishing a new book about darts, then please e-mail to let me know and I will provide you with my postal address. I will review the book for the Book and DVD Review section of my website and try and place it in Darts World and Bull's-eye News.

I can also supply publishers with a list of other potential reviewers to assist in promoting your work.
