Maggs Bros. Ltd: Rare books and manuscripts, since 1853

Both our Curzon Street and Bedford Square premises are closed to visitors at this time as a result of restrictions imposed to combat the coronavirus pandemic. 

We are glad to continue fulfilling both internet and telephone orders as usual, although delivery times may vary. If you have any questions please do get in touch with a member of staff either by calling our usual number or emailing enquiries@maggs.com.

We forward to seeing you all again in person as soon as possible. 


Established in 1853, Maggs Bros. Ltd. is one of the world’s largest and oldest antiquarian booksellers. Serious about books without being stuffy, we are proud of our traditions and history but are continually looking to the future. We embrace the new age of information technology, and combine with it a continuity which has seen us deal with successive generations of collectors and with libraries over many decades

To view a selection of our stock please use the search and browse menus above. If you are looking for anything specific do get in touch directly, as not all our stock is online.

We offer free worldwide delivery by Royal Mail International Tracked for orders placed on Maggs.com over £700* and a tracked courier service on request for an additional fee. We run an international business, travelling frequently throughout the world to buy, to sell and advise on individual works and collections.
