Pickering & Chatto has been dealing in rare books for the best part of two centuries. We specialise principally in the fields of philosophy, social sciences, literature, science and medicine, law, politics, and women’s studies, from the fifteenth century to the first decades of the twentieth century


We produce a number of catalogues each year, along with lists on various subjects. Printed catalogues can be ordered by emailing us or viewed and downloaded here.

In addition, short general bulletins and lists on particular subjects will also appear from time to time on our website; recent topics include medicine, law, and David Hume.

We also exhibit at a number of book fairs, both in the UK and overseas, including the ABA fairs at Olympia and Chelsea, and occasionally at the international fairs in California and New York.

Pickering & Chatto are members of the ABA, ILAB and PBFA, and are VAT registered in the UK (GB 896 1174 90).
