Collection: Literature 2019

This catalogue spans more than 350 years of published Literature and represents authors from all walks of life; from Sagan to the Beatniks, Victorian sensation fiction to Tagore and the ancient wisdom of Confucius huddled up next to Angela Carter's grim tales.

Highlights include the First Edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover, signed by D. H. Lawrence; a copy of The Waste Land printed on Virginia Woolf's kitchen table, and a miniature smaller than a penny (with magnifying glass included!)
