THE HOME OF THE RARE BOOK
Based in an imposing early 18th-century town house in Mayfair, Shapero Rare Books is an internationally renowned dealer in antiquarian & rare books, and works on paper. Our specialists have between them over 250 years of experience in the book world, with particular expertise in fine illustrated books from the 15th to the 20th century, travel & voyages, natural history, literature (including modern first editions), children’s books, guidebooks, Hebraica & Judaica and works of Russian interest.
Our Gallery specialises in both Modern & Contemporary Art and Historical Prints & Watercolours, across a broad range of subjects. Shapero Modern, set up in 2014, focuses on modern & contemporary prints and works of art, curating several shows annually on topical themes in our collection. We also specialise in historical prints and original works of art across a broad range of subjects, from antique architectural and natural history prints to modern pochoir plates, as well as photographs from vintage to modern art.
Our Bookshop and Gallery can be found in the heart of Mayfair on Saint George Street, where most of our stock is available to view and on public display. We also exhibit at major international art fairs, including TEFAF (both Maastricht and New York), Frieze Masters and Masterpiece, as well as antiquarian & rare books fairs including New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Hong Kong.
