About Us

We buy and sell antiquarian and secondhand books, maps, prints, documents, letters and ephemera.

After attending Keele University where I studied history and philosophy, I started working for a firm of auctioneers and soon became the head of the department handling books, manuscripts and prints.

In 1985, I decided to set up on my own, and established a business selling mostly from printed catalogues with retail premises based at Stoke sub Hamdon in Somerset. Apart from selling to collectors and other dealers, we have many libraries and museums amongst our customers. Although we still occasionally mail out catalogues, the majority of our sales are now conducted via the internet.

Our aim is to offer interesting and unusual items printed, written or drawn on paper.

Most of our business is by post, but visitors are welcome by appointment.

We hope you will enjoy exploring this site.
