Fodor's Expert Review Maggs Bros. Ltd.

Mayfair Books/Stationery

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

How could any book lover resist a shop with such a Dickensian name? Maggs has been selling rare antiquarian books and manuscripts since 1853 and is one of the world's oldest and largest such dealers (they also deal in autographs). The staff – with specialists in Early British and Early European works, Travel, and Japanese photography – are expert enough to advise important collectors, but friendly and helpful to all interested visitors. iMaggs also has a tradition of carrying works on subversion, the occult, and more. There are occasional themed exhibitions featuring manuscripts and rare editions., nThere's also an annex shop on Curzon Street in Mayfair.
