I no longer deal in rare and antiquarian books.
This website is gradually closing, but some items may still be for sale:
Make me an offer if you wish to buy.
I still buy for my own collection rare books, magazines and ephemera of gay interest, almost always published before 1980,
and science-fiction and fantasy (books, not magazines) published before 1950.
I also buy erotica of any sexual interest published before 1900.
If you have something to sell contact me.
With many thanks to my customers over the last nine years
- I hope you always find what you are looking for.



Books of Gay Interest in French - Livres d'intérêt gai en français


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.
