Early. Fine. Original. Interesting. You would be forgiven for thinking this was a fine wine site, but it has something of that flavour.

On our shelves you will discover early printed English (STC) books together with Continental pre- and post ‘incunabula’. Some of these are in their original or early bindings. Some are illuminated or hand coloured. We hope that, as you browse, you will find things to interest you, even if you are just window shopping. And please remember to bookmark our site and come back regularly to see new listings. And…to receive our occasional catalogues, please sign up to make sure you don’t miss out.
