Our Founder & CEO
Bernard Shapero is a renowned international dealer in rare books and works on paper. He began his career in 1979 selling books at Gray’s Antiques Market in Mayfair, moving to a purpose-designed gallery in Holland Park in 1989, before returning to Mayfair in 1996. His specialist knowledge lies primarily in works of Natural History, Travel and Literature, but his years in the rare book world and his enthusiasm for printed books and works on paper make him a font of knowledge.
