An Exciting Announcement - We Are Now ABA Members


I'm very proud to announce that I have been elected an associate member of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association.

The ABA is the senior trade body for dealers in rare books in the British Isles, and is the oldest organisation of its kind in the world. Members are elected solely on the basis of proven experience, expertise and integrity, and we observe the highest professional and ethical standards.

The ABA also organises book fairs, and now that I'm a member I will be exhibiting at Olympia and Chelsea, two of the most important rare book shows in Britain.

But more than just a trade body, the ABA and its sister organisations around the world are also like a family. It's been nearly three years since I set out on my own as a bookseller, and over that time my colleagues have been incredibly generous with support and advice. I wouldn't be where I am today without their encouragement, and I hope that over the coming years I can give back to this wonderful community.
