Collection: Sotheran 260th Anniversary Celebration

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.

Sotheran's has been dealing with private collectors and institutions on a grand scale ever since, and has traded continuously through two world wars, numerous financial crises and the recent pandemic. It hasn't always been easy, but we have reached our 260th year by sticking to our tried and tested formula - providing rare material in beautiful condition to our worldwide community of collectors.

We'd be nothing without our loyal and beloved customers, so we send you our warmest thanks as we mark this special year. 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.
