There is a lot of art in this month’s change-over: some nice oriental art and photography, sections on applied arts, art techniques, performing arts, etc.  

Expect lots of literature as well this month, including first editions and collectable titles, poetry and literary criticism.  

Other main sections this month are

There are good sections for children’s books, natural history, social sciences, history and travel.

We also had a couple of deliveries to Francis Edwards. These include Murray’s travel guides, modern firsts, sets of Virginia Woolf’s diaries and letters, Ibsen’s plays, first editions of G.A. Henty novels, Folio Society and much more.

We look forward to seeing you!
