History & Politics

Alongside social sciences and other facets of the analytic tradition, history and politics is it seems increasingly in demand. From antiquarian works on ancient history to signed biographies of modern-era politicians such as Margaret Thatcher, we’ve seen this area of collecting grow stronger over recent years, and therefore maintain an interesting and varied stock as well as seeking out particular titles or specialist areas for the collectors on our books.

Contact Angus Robb for more information about rare books on history and politics at Shapero.
