Graham York Rare Books was founded in 1982, dealing from mail order catalogues and book fairs. After trying various retail premises the current site, at the West end of Honiton, was opened in January 2002, with plenty of space for customers to browse the large stock comfortably. In fact there are over ten thousand books in stock covering most subjects; Literature, Natural History, Topography, Art, Travel. Architecture, Costume and Textiles, Childrens and Illustrated, Modern First Editions, Poetry, Naval and Military, Cookery and Wine, Sport, Transport, History etc., with an emphasis on West Country material (particularly East Devon), Antiquarian leather bound books and Spain. There is also a good selection of West Country maps and prints, and decorative antiquarian prints on most subjects.
The main specialities, which feature in the shop and the regular mail order catalogues, are Spain, Gypsies and George Borrow. Contact us if you would like to be on the mailing list wherever you live, as we ship books all over the world. Previous catalogues can also be viewed on our website, along with a list of the book fairs we will exhibit at, which include the UK's most prestigious fairs at Olympia, Chelsea, Edinburgh, and overseas fairs in Barcelona, Madrid and Brussels.
The shop is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30 to 5.00, and we are always interested in buying buying books, maps or prints.
