I no longer deal in rare and antiquarian books.
This website is gradually closing, but some items may still be for sale:
Make me an offer if you wish to buy.
I still buy for my own collection rare books, magazines and ephemera of gay interest, almost always published before 1980,
and science-fiction and fantasy (books, not magazines) published before 1950.
I also buy erotica of any sexual interest published before 1900.
If you have something to sell contact me.
With many thanks to my customers over the last nine years
- I hope you always find what you are looking for.

First Editions of Lesbian Interest
Founded in 2009 and based in the UK, Arbery Books is a leading online dealer in rare and secondhand books and ephemera of lesbian interest. We also specialise in publications of gay and transgender interest, other aspects of sexuality and antiquarian (pre-1900) curiosities, erotica, picaresque and sexual behaviour.

We ship worldwide, usually within one working day of receiving an order. Prices include UK postage and packing. Titles by men in this section may not reflect lesbian sensibilities and are included primarily as curiosities. Unless otherwise noted, the book is the first-ever printing.
