As general booksellers, we have also specialised in Children's and Illustrated books, Folklore and Arthurian literature for over twenty years and have issued substantial catalogues in these areas.

We also stock a range of old maps and prints, with an emphasis on lithographs and engravings of York and Yorkshire and the work of book illustrators of the period 1800-1940.
