About Us

1992-2022 30 Year Anniversary of Dandy



We have been supplying UK official information for 30 years. During this time there have been so many changes, we can remember back in the day, sorting 40 sets of House of Commons Papers, Bills, Lords Papers and Commands into numerical order for our library customers.

In 1996 UK official publications started going online, we continued to supply print, whereby we would download the pdfs and bind them up inhouse, we still do this today.

In 2006, libraries were starting to realise perhaps they could go e-only, so we decided to launch Public Information Online (PIO), it is a web-based archive of searchable Parliamentary and Official documents and is the only resource which will allow you to view so many Parliamentary publications in one place in portable document format (PDF). It contains publications from the Westminster Parliament, Scottish Parliament, Northern Ireland Assembly, Welsh Parliament (Senedd), Scottish Government and also non-Parliamentary material. Customers are now able to access a fully indexed, fully searchable database of UK parliamentary papers.

On this site we only sell our bestsellers in print, please browse our selection but remember we are able to source and supply any book in print worldwide, additionally we link to our PIO shop for all our official publications.

Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept credit card payment. Dandy Booksellers is based in the UK but if you are shopping from abroad, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your own currency. Some credit card companies may make a charge for currency conversion and we recommend you check with your card issuer before making a transaction.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
