About us

Christian White, founder of Christian White Rare Books, has been a rare bookseller since 2006 and a book collector for much longer. His main area of expertise lies in manuscript material (late medieval onwards), early printed books, association copies and annotated books. We are fascinated by inscribed and presentation copies of all periods - books with interesting provenance. This is reflected in our varied offerings in literature, economics, politics and philosophy, history and science, with an emphasis on good condition, and customer service.

Christian White Rare Books exhibits regularly at rare book fairs in the United Kingdom, locally in northern England, in London and New York. We are proud to be members of the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association, PBFA and can offer an unconditional guarantee on everything that we sell.
