Ashton Rare Books


Ashton Rare Books
Over the past decade Ashton Rare Books has specialised in collecting and selling fine copies of rare books for the most part in the fields of

Modern First Editions
Fine Illustrated Books
Classic Children’s Fiction

We trade as a family run internet business centred in Leicester in the heart of the Midlands. We carefully select those items in the finest condition or with significant literary association.

Our main aim is to offer highly collectible titles which are unique and in high quality condition. Not all our stock is listed on our website at any one time and we welcome direct contact especially if you are looking for a specific genre or title.

We are happy to assist in adding the final books to a collection or to find the perfect gift for a special occasion. Please contact us.
