Robert Humm Bookshop

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.
Our shop is in the former station master's house at Stamford railway station. Our opening hours are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday to Saturday from 9.30 to 5.00. Come and pay us a call - the shop is easy to reach by road or rail. We have our own free parking and the A1 Great North Road passes a mile to the west. Our station is on the cross-country Birmingham to East Anglia railway, with an hourly train service.
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.
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.

Web Site glitches Our new sales program has two regrettable quirks:
1. If you have been whizzed back to the Home page while placing an order you'll need to find your way back to the Checkout. To do this use the Checkout link at the top left of this page.
2. On some browsers you will find the running total of your order remains at zero even when there are items on it. To check the contents of your order use the View Order link at the top of any page.
