Catalogues

When you buy a rare book or manuscript from us, you not only buy the book, but also the description and research that went into the book. Every book is shipped along with a copy of its description, which is our guarantee to you of what you are buying.
The oldest form of antiquarian bookselling by distance is through catalogue. We take pride in upholding this tradition through regularly issued print and digital catalogues. Sign up for our mailing list to be the first to hear about new releases of rare books and manuscripts.
