Happy Birthday Sotheran's

Our staff tend to stay with the company for a long time, but even so, none of us remembers 8th December 1761, the date on which Henry Sotheran started a book and wine dealing business in York that would go on to become one of the most recognisable names in fine books and prints.

We really hope you'll join us in a celebratory toast and enjoy looking through the following 260 books and prints - one for every year of Sotheran's life so far.
