The Book Annex started life in 2004 as a venture founded by "veteran" bookseller Peter J. Hadley and fellow director Martin Ellingham. We are situated in the heart of the historic Essex maritime town of Harwich, once the home of Christopher Jones, master of the Mayflower. The company offers a wide range of academic publications covering most disciplines as well as a few more popular fiction titles and selected DVDs and CDs.
We send books out all over the world and whilst the majority of our customers are educational, industrial and business institutions as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students, we also have a strong customer base in the areas of film, theatre, the arts and religion.
Our aim is to provide the best possible value for money and whilst we list our books on third party seller sites such as Amazon, ABE, Alibris and Biblio, our prices are always discounted on this site.
Callers at our shop in Harwich are always welcome. To ensure that we can give you our full attention, it is best to email us or phone in advance of your visit, especially if you are representing a University, Library or other institution.
