For over 80 years we have created or enhanced libraries of all shapes and sizes for readers and collectors across the world. We believe that books speak, and loudly. A shelf, a wall, a room full of books reveals so much. Our experienced booksellers live and breathe good books, whether rare or new. Every project is different but all our libraries tell a story, and tell it well. We might explore one subject or many, reflect a personality or a place, or simply choose books that we know a particular client will most enjoy. Our expertise lies in understanding what our discerning clients want to achieve with a library and then exceeding their expectations.
Heywood Hill advises collectors, or their heirs and estates, over the sale of formed collections of rare books. We work quietly to find a new home for a collection as a whole, whether a private or institutional buyer.
