Maggs Bros

    “You’re going to find it hard to summarize us,” chuckles Managing Director Ed Maggs of antiquarian booksellers Maggs Bros. Ltd. Indeed, it’s difficult to refer to Maggs as a store since it appears more like a historic library, situated in a grand and imposing town house with various rooms and staircases leading off to different departments. (“I still feel intimidated coming in here, and my name’s above the door!” notes Maggs). Since the 1850s, they have dealt in rare books and manuscripts, ancient travel documents and “monuments of printing.” As well as dealing with collectors, universities and other institutions from the UK and abroad, the company also attracts regular customers - especially those looking for unusual gifts for booklovers. They pride themselves on being very much an open shop where customers can come in and browse at their leisure. Although each room mostly consists of ancient tomes lining the walls, there are some more unusual offerings too – such as a desk once used by Charles Dickens. The second building at the back also has a collection of vintage ‘60s memorabilia, from printed matter to vintage T-Shirts and opium pipes. Show lessRead more
