On-Line Bookshop

Robert Humm Bookshop



FROM 19 JULY WE SHALL NO LONGER REQUIRE APPOINTMENTS ON MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS. FOR MORE INFORMATION SEE HERE.

Robert Humm & Co specialises in rare and out-of-print books about railways, other transport and industrial history. We also stock a wide selection of new books on railways.
For over a quarter of a century our shop was in the former station master's house at Stamford railway station but we have moved to new premises in Stamford and the shop at the station is closed. We opened at 59 Scotgate, Stamford PE9 2YQ on 15 February 2016.
The new premises are no great distance from Station House and remain convenient for the A1 Great North Road and the railway. Stamford station, with an hourly service on the cross-country Birmingham to East Anglia railway, is ten minutes walk.
Stamford itself is a handsome town with fine architecture, excellent shopping and restaurants - it is well worth a day out in its own right.
We offer, as always, a mail order service and welcome enquiries by phone, post or e-mail. Our knowledgeable and helpful staff are always happy to help.
In addition to the excellent shop stock we issue printed catalogues of our choicest rare and out-of-print books once or twice a year. Exceptionally we are posting a pdf version of Catalogue 107 for downloading to help keep business ticking over while the shop is closed. You can find it under Printed Catalogues. The contents of the catalogues are not listed on this web site - they have to be ordered directly from the shop.
You will have gathered that this is not primarily an on-line business. However most of our new books and a little selection of our second-hand stock are listed on this site; most of the listings can be ordered on-line.
