We are a family business established in 1973 out of a passion for science and medicine and a love of books.

As our business has grown and expanded its range we have come to include rare and unusual items in all areas relevant to history and culture. Archives, academic libraries and worldwide institutions are among our customers. We have long-standing personal customers who have shared their enthusiasms with us and inspired us to research and help locate books for their collections. We are also very pleased to offer our help to people who are just looking for one particular item or setting out to grow their own libraries. 

If you would like our expert advice or are interested in buying or selling, we are always ready to help.
