It is with sadness that I report the death of the main partner of John Drury Rare Books, David Edmunds. It was he who searched out interesting and rare items to buy for our stock, and with a lifetime of acquired knowledge, enjoyed cataloguing these purchases and offering them for sale. Together we created our catalogues and exhibited at a few book fairs every year.

I am sorry to tell you that catalogue 206 will be our final catalogue. Most will be sent digitally to subscribers, as is now usual, although there will be a few printed ones. Do let me know which you would like.

Please continue to search our website. Over the next few months prices may well be reduced!
