Maggs Bros Ltd

Ed Maggs

Modern Books

Ed Maggs, Managing Director, is also responsible for the Modern department, which specializes largely in English language material after about 1800. Ed has got deep expertise in subjects including literary archives, books of the fin de siècle, Lawrence of Arabia, and books from the English Private Presses from Kelmscott to Gogmagog. He is particularly partial to the works of Max Beerbohm. Such education as he admits to has come from the books he’s handled over the more than thirty years he’s worked for the firm.
