About Our Store:

Victorian Novels & Novelists



I try to offer the widest range of fiction titles from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with particular emphasis on lesser-known (and half-forgotten) novelists. I also offer a range of Victorian literary periodicals, many of which include original serial versions of novels and short stories which are almost impossible to locate in any other form.

The novels I have on offer range from three-decker first editions, through collectable reprint editions, fine bindings, foreign editions in English and early paperbacks, to more modest reading copies.

My books are carefully researched and thoroughly described.

My primary sales are by catalogues (printed and on-line), which are issued (free of charge) on a roughly quarterly basis: please contact me if you would like to go on to my mailing list.

Books may be searched on this website by author, or title. Books may also be browsed more generally by choosing one of the special CATEGORIES (for example "Historical Fiction" or "First Editions"): there are also specific CATEGORIES for the latest titles from my catalogues, and for other recent acquisitions.

If I cannot offer a sought-for title, I will endeavour to locate a copy. I am always pleased to receive either individual "wants", or "desiderata" lists.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me, by phone, e-mail or letter, and I will endeavour to assist you.
