May Books of the Month

Welcome To Princeps Books

Princeps Books is an independent bookseller set up in 2021, specialising in signed first editions and collectible/limited editions.

We don’t believe in boundaries or genres, so we try to keep an eclectic range of curated titles in our store, from Childrens books, smattering of comics, non-fiction and literary fiction. Most of all, we are drawn to anything strange or fantastical, so our shelves lean heavily towards Fantasy, Sci-Fi and YA fiction.

We are just starting out, but we have big plans. We look forward to promoting up-and-coming writers and producing our exclusive range of limited editions, so please follow us on Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date and be part of our story.


Featured Offer

This month we are offering a full set of Joe Abercrombie’s epic First Law series – all complete with bookplates signed by Joe.

Six book set, formed by the main First law trilogy (The Blade Itself, Before They Are Hanged, Last Argument of Kings) followed by three standalones: Red Country, The Heroes, Best Served Cold.
