Founded in 1847, Bernard Quaritch Ltd is one of the oldest antiquarian and rare book dealers in the world. We handle rare printed books and manuscripts in a wide range of fields, including: art and architecture; early printed books and medieval manuscripts; English literature and history; European literature; the human sciences; Islamic manuscripts and books on Asia; music; science, medicine and gastronomy; and travel. We also deal in photography and photobooks, as well as posters and propaganda. Our valuations department provides formal valuations for probate or insurance purposes, and we also negotiate private-treaty sales of archives in many fields. We are very happy to accept auction commissions in all specialisms, and we regularly represent clients in London and New York, and, by special arrangement, across Europe.
