Chesterton Books for Sale!

I've recently heard from a Chesterton fan who is looking to sell some of his Chesterton books. "I just have too many books", he says.

These are the Chesterton books he's offering for sale:

Seven volumes of the Collected Works of G.K. Chesterton, published by Ignatius Press-- Vols. 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 20 ...volume 20 is hardback with a mylar cover on the dust jacket. A couple of the volumes might be considered very good with slight shelf wear, but most are like new. The pages are clean, no markings.

I also have Common Sense 101: Lessons from G.K. Chesterton, by Dale Ahlquist, published by Ignatius Press. Like new.


He says he'll be willing to sell all eight of the books for £100, 120 euro, or the best offer.

You can see a listing of the Ignatius Press Collected Works, and the content of each volume, at this link. I own several of these books, and I can confirm that they are very handsomely produced and annotated.

I've also read Common Sense 101, and it's a breezy and entertaining introduction to Chesterton, worth reading even if you're familiar with Chesterton.

I was even privileged to meet the author Dale Ahlquist, President of the American Chesterton Society, when he came to Dublin in 2014. Here I am with him and Angelo Bottone, who has been doing sterling work with the Iona Institute in recent years.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these books, please contact me at and I will put you in the contact with the gentleman in question.
