Maggs Bros. Ltd.

Maggs Bros. Ltd. Review

How could any book lover resist a shop with such a deliciously Dickensian name? Located in a Georgian townhouse in one of Mayfair's toniest squares, Maggs, established 1853, is one of the world's oldest and largest rare-book dealers. Shop staff is expert enough to advise important collectors, but is nonetheless friendly and helpful to all interested visitors. Far from being fussy, the store includes a "counterculture" section with works on subversion, extremism, punk, the occult, and more.
