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.

Fiction of Gay Interest: Novels by US authors

Founded in 2009 , Arbery Books is the UK's leading online dealer in rare and secondhand gay books and ephemera. We also specialise in publications of lesbian and transgender interest, other aspects of sexuality and antiquarian (pre-1900) curiosities, erotica, picaresque and sexual behaviour. Recently we have added early science-fiction and fantasy to our lists.

Looking down the passageway behind Tiger, Francis noted an elderly 'bather' who had prowled past them several times. He was now talking to a very tall, skinny attendant dressed in whites. As Francis or Tiger seemed to be the subject of the conversation, Francis was not too surprised when they were presently approached by the man in white.

'Hello, you two,' he greeted them with the same girlish effusiveness that seemed characteristic of all the people they'd met during the night. 'Are you having fun?'
