About Prologos Books
Mail-order book service founded by the late Lester Kanefsky (1916-2007); now managed by his son, Chris.
A 5* seller of books that are well described and packed with care, Prologos Books began in 1975.
My father was an antiquarian, new and secondhand bookseller specialising in Islam, Sufism, the Perennial Philosophy/Traditional Wisdom.
I revived the business, have been online from early 2006. Only a few of my inherited Arabic and French titles left.
Now listing a large varied selection of quality second-hand non-fiction including many art titles, photography, transport (cars and planes), aeromodelling plus collectable crime fiction books.
