Jarndyce Antiquarian Booksellers
Jarndyce Antiquarian Booksellers, established in 1969, have published over 200 catalogues. We are the leading specialists in 18th and, particularly, 19th century English Literature & History.
We publish up to eight catalogues a year covering a wide variety of subjects. Recent catalogues have included: Dickens, 17th & 18th Century Books & Pamphlets, London, Women Writers, Language and Education, Economic, Social & Political History (including Philosophy), Books in Translation, Bloods and Penny Dreadfuls, Chapbooks & Broadsides, Yellowback novels, Plays & Theatre, and Newspapers.
Our building in Great Russell Street, opposite the British Museum, was built in the 1730s and given a facelift by the Duke of Bedford in the 1850s. Randolph Caldecott, the 19th century illustrator, lived and worked here. It has been a bookshop for over a century and retains many period features. The ground floor has been renovated to recreate a 19th century bookshop within an 18th century building, incorporating panelling, a working fireplace and original wooden floor.
The partners are Brian Lake and Janet Nassau, assisted by Helen Smith, Carol Murphy, Joshua Clayton & Edward Nassau Lake.
