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.



Signed, inscribed and dedicated books
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.

If no other details are given, the book carries the author's or editor's signature. An inscription includes a phrase or sentence with the writer's name (in full or part) in the writer's handwriting. A dedication gives both the writer's name and the name of the individual it was dedicated to, in the writer's handwriting. Unless otherwise stated, the inscription or dedication is by the author. The online catalogue usually shows a picture of the signature / inscription / dedication. If this is missing, please contact us.
