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. We are still operating our Library Department during the coronavirus outbreak and so please don't hesitate to get in touch to find out more.
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.
