Rare and old gay, lesbian and transgender books and ephemera
Founded in 2009, Arbery Books is the
UK's leading online dealer in rare and secondhand books and ephemera of
gay, lesbian and transgender interest. Our other fields of interest are sexuality in general and antiquarian (pre-1900) curiosities, erotica, picaresque and sexual behaviour.
Recently we have added early science-fiction and fantasy to our lists.
We ship worldwide, usually within one working day of receiving an order. £ prices include UK postage and packing. Where $ prices are given, they include postage to the USA.
Our most recent additions include For a Lost Soldier, a very rare novel by Dutch choreographer and writer Rudi van Dantzig about an encounter between a young Dutch boy and a Canadian soldier during the Second World War.
In Robin Maugham's 1955 novel Behind the Mirror a screenwriter goes to Africa and finds a
ménage a trois (or quatre or more) with a gay element. A few years earlier (1949), Christopher Isherwood took an extensive trip through South America with photographer and lover William Caskey, recorded in
The Condor and the Cows.
To our a collection of books from the eclectic Fortune Press, we have added the 1927
Montague Summers translation of Ludovico Sinistrari's 1680 work Demoniality -
everything you always wanted to know about demons, succubi and incubi.
We buy old and rare gay, lesbian and transgender books, periodicals and ephemera.
We are primarily interested in hardbacks and periodicals published before 1990 and paperbacks and
ephemera published before 1980, but we consider all offers. We also buy rare books of any subject matter.
Contact us if you have a single copy or a whole library for sale.
