About Blackwell's Rare Books

Opened in 1879 by Benjamin Henry Blackwell, whose son Sir Basil was a founder member of the ABA and one-time owner of the Shakespeare Head Press. We can still be found on the second floor of the original location on Broad Street, Oxford, where all our collectable stock is available for perusal. Printed catalogues are still produced and sent out all over the world, featuring some of the same books once sold by Benjamin Henry and Sir Basil, though they would surely have never dreamt of a presence on the internet.
