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.
We're running our first-ever sale this month. 15% off all titles across the board, UK postage included.
Recent additions include rare first editions of Denton Welch's
In Youth Is Pleasure
(1944). They depict the writer's adolescence and youth, the former as autobiography, the latter as a novel.
Too much sex . . . We have a large number of 1970s gay erotic novels on our shelves. It's time to pass them on to people who will care for them.
We're offering 6 for £10, UK postage included. Adults only. Check out the deal here.

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.
