Fine Editions have been our passion for more than twenty years. In 2001, with books double-shelved in every nook and cranny, we opened Barchester Books, selling chiefly to some of Manhattan's premier booksellers, from whom we learned the trade. Fine Editions Ltd appeared several years later on ABE Books, Alibris, Biblio and other online venues. This is our first web site, launched on the eve of 2012, ten years after our first forays into bookselling. While we do not maintain open premises, our carefully chosen and expertly cataloged selection of fine books may be seen by appointment. We are always happy to hear from customers with questions about books in our inventory or who wish to sell rare items in our areas of specialty.
