I buy as well as sell and will travel to see good books and deal in archives, undertakes valuations, sells books, ephemera, photographs, manuscripts and original art. I tend to specialise in occult, counterculture, contemporary art/modern art, protest, the sixties and so on.
I've worked in the rare book trade for twenty or so years. I helped start the UK branch of a dotcom in '99 dealing rare and secondhand books then worked for Maggs Bros until 2016. For three of the years that I worked there I also worked on secondment to Julio Mario Santo Domingo's LSD Library. In the brief time that I have worked as an independent dealer I have, among other things, mounted a small show of original calendar art from India with/at Tenderbooks, sold a major collection of protest posters produced by the Berkeley Poster Workshop and done an important valuation for a sixties/seventies archive for London's Victoria and Albert Museum. I buy books well as sell them.
