Non-Fiction: Miscellaneous Titles of Gay Interest


Founded in 2009, Arbery Books is the UK's leading online dealer in rare and secondhand books and ephemera of gay interest. We also specialise in publications of lesbian 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.


The books in this section look at the world from different perspectives - mostly through gay-tinted glasses, and sometimes with more homophobia than homophilia. Some titles were written by gay authors but have no gay content.


On other pages:
   Gay Travel Guides
   Sexuality (non-fiction; some titles may cover male homosexuality
   as a secondary topic)

"Indeed, military outposts were recognized as environments so notorious for sodomy that this could be adduced as a motive for clemency: in 1440 the government justified canceling a convicted sodomite's fine because, among other reasons, when he committed sodomy 'he was at military service and frequented soldiers, who are commonly profligate in that vice'."
