We feel that certain antique bookshops retain something of a bygone era. In a fast moving world, they are places to sit back and absorb manuscripts and books from an earlier time. Maggs is such a bookshop. A global centre for serious book collections, a trip to Maggs is not so much a visit as a pilgrimage. We’d recommend Maggs to anyone who is interested in rare first editions, hard to find books and exotic maps.
