Maggs Bros. Ltd.

We have made the difficult decision to close our premises early this year for the safety of our staff and customers. Both 48 Bedford Square and 46 Curzon Street will be closed from Friday 17th of December. We will still process internet or telephone orders to the best of our ability, but offer our sincere apologies if it is not possible to dispatch certain books.

Please email or telephone us on 0207 493 7160 if you would like to place an order. 

We wish you a very merry Christmas, and look forward to seeing you again in the New Year. 


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
