We provide here on the website a representative selection from our stock files. Please enquire if the name you are seeking is not to be found, as we have a very large quantity of further material and many thousands of items of lesser-known figures. We should be very happy to respond directly to any request for specific names or subjects.

All material is guaranteed genuine, and any item may be returned within fourteen days of receipt under the terms of the 'Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013'. We shall provide a cancellation form with all orders.

A - autograph, T - typewritten, L - letter, D - document, N - note, Ms - manuscript, S - signed, n.p. - no place, n.d. - no date, n.y. - no year. Hence ALS (autograph letter signed) - entirely in the hand of the writer; LS - text in another hand, but signed by the writer; TLS - typewritten but signed by the writer. Most of these abbreviations are expanded in our descriptions.

The abbreviations (folio, 4to, 8vo, etc.) derive historically from the number of times a large single sheet of paper is folded to produce the size of page required. The following are representative examples: folio [1600], 306 x 200 mm (12 x 8 inches); 4to [1800], 234 x 185 mm (9¼ x 7¼ inches); 8vo, 179 x 113 mm (7 x 4½ inches).

All bills are payable on receipt, and a small charge for postage and insurance will normally be added to all orders, usually 5 (GBP) inland and 10 overseas. We accept personal cheques (in sterling only), bank / wire transfers, and payments made through PayPal (for which credit cards may be used and a PayPal account is not required). Please contact us first to establish that the material is available and to obtain the final price. We handle all arrangements with regard to export licensing when required.
