Maggs Bros. Ltd. - Dealers of Rare books and manuscripts since 1853.

The walls of books around him dense with the past formed a kind of insulation against the present world of disasters.Ross MacDonald

Maggs Bros Ltd has been dealing in rare books and manuscripts since 1853. Our staff is organized into nine different departments, each offering a different expertise.

We are based in a fine Georgian townhouse in London’s Berkeley Square, and from there run an international business, travelling frequently throughout the world to buy, to sell and to advise.
