'We are very lucky to have this kind of fair… it’s not elitist, it’s not specialist, you don’t have to be a scholar, you just have to be someone with an immense thirst for the glory of books' (Stephen Fry, actor, writer and book collector).

We're delighted to be exhibiting in the May 2021 edition of Firsts Online - a veritable treasure trove for the collector.

The fair goes live on Thursday 20th and runs through to Tuesday 25th May.

If you have any questions, do get in touch with one of our specialists.
