Book Collecting

A Guide by Genre and Subject

More Information
This section is a work in progress and is being added to constantly.
The aim of this section is to provide an overview for those interested in or thinking about collecting books in a specific field. We will attempt to give some history and information about the development of each genre and recommended authors and reading. It is wise to get as much information as possible before embarking on a collectors journey and we hope that this site will provide something of use to all collectors, readers and enthusiasts.
We will be adding to this section continually so please check back if you cannot yet find your specific interest. Preparing these pages takes a great deal of time, research and work and we appreciate your patience.
If you are looking to buy or sell books then our rare book dealers section may be of some assistance.
