I have extensive experience of developing collections, having worked closely with major libraries, institutions, and individual collectors both in the UK and world-wide. I hope to continue and develop future relationships with collectors, helping to locate much sought after volumes, or share the thrill of finding the unknown and unexpected.
My aim is to stock rare and important books (together with occasional manuscripts and ephemeral items) in a range of scientific and medical subjects, primarily in first or early editions, and both in the original language or translation. An emphasis will be placed on books of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, though this will not be a rigid criterion of selection. Books relating to the Social Sciences and history of ideas will also be sourced, with books by or about women a particular area of interest.
