New Catalogue: Nineteenth Century Literature

We are delighted to announce a new catalogue of rare books devoted to Nineteenth Century Literature. The selection, almost the entirety of which is new to stock and acquired during the the last twelve months of lockdowns and disruptions, includes fine copies of the century’s most important novels and association copies of the most intimate and personal nature.

The difficulty with collecting the great works of nineteenth century literature is finding copies in beautiful condition. These books were invariably devoured by an eager reading public on publication, so fine copies in original cloth or early bidnings are desperately hard to come by.

Over the last year, acquisitions from several private sources have yielded a groundswell of exceedingly nice copies of the some the century’s most-read works of fiction and poetry, so we are very grateful for the opportunity to present them collectively here.
