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.

“Es geht in diesem radikalen Entwicklungsroman (autobiografisch) um einen Jungen – unehelich geboren, früh Halbwaise, der Vater obendrein noch Jude -, der im Hamburg der Nachkriegsjahre unter ärmlichen Bedingungen heranwächst und sich im Umgang mit Theaterleuten siener Neigung zu Kunst and Homosexualität bewußt wird; der einen Vater sucht; der als Knecht un ein ‘landwirtschaftliches Existenz-Experiment’ nach Frankreich flieht; der an den Rand der Gesellschaft gedrängt und damit auf sich selbst verwiesen wird.”

“Liebe Eltern, Eure Kinder sind schlechter herausgekommen, als Ihr gedacht habt. Ihr würdet uns nicht wiedererkennen, wenn Ihr uns im Fernsehen seht. Wir haben auch nicht gedacht, dass es so einfach ist."

Die Männer mit dem Rosa Winkel
Arbery Ref: 000647
ISBN: 3-87536-026-5
170 pages,
"Heinz Heger was the pen name used by Hans Neumann, who provides the introduction to this book and wrote the story, using the first person, of Josef Kohout (1917 - March 1994), an Austrian Nazi concentration camp survivor. Kohout had been imprisoned for his homosexuality. Die Männer mit dem rosa Winkel (The Men With the Pink Triangle) is one of very few autobiographical accounts of the treatment of homosexuals in Nazi imprisonment. Its publication helped to illuminate not just the suffering gay prisoners of the Nazi regime had experienced, but the lack of recognition and compensation they received after the war's end." further details on Wikipedia (which mistakes Neumann for Kohout) and on page 10 of Homosexuals in Austria: Nazi persecution and the long struggle for rehabilitation

Arbery Books also sells secondhand and rare mainstream titles.
