Christopher Morris - Books for the devoted

About Us

The Proprietor

Christopher Morris is currently a sole trader and a stock supervisor at a major academic library in the UK. He graduated from Bradford University in the 1970's with a degree in mathematics and embarked on a long career in the library supply trade. Following on from a family tradition of service in the armed forces (which dates back to the 19th century), Chris developed an interest in military history, so initially working from home, he set up Christopher Morris - Bookseller, supplying military, naval and aviation titles.

The Business

Christopher Morris - Bookseller was established by the proprietor in 1995 and traded as a mail-order supplier of books and other media to dedicated markets, beginning with military history and moving into ornithology at the request of loyal customers. The proprietor worked alone and from home for the first three years. From these humble beginnings the business grew and grew. New subjects, more staff and bigger premises were introduced as the client base developed to include an international audience. In 2004 Christopher Morris launched his web initiative.

Chris recently introduced a communications and information unit to initiate his web-launch. Meet the Team.

The company hopes to build itself a reputation as the provider of books by the enthusiast for the enthusiast. This will be built upon the efforts of a dedicated team of information professionals who will cater to the needs of a discriminating audience - people who know exactly what they like but who are perhaps not always sure how to get it.
