bookmania:

Henry Sotheran’s, Fine Books and Prints. Founded in York in 1761, established in London in 1815, Henry Sotheran Limited has a long and distinguished history.

For over 200 years the bookshop has been offering unsurpassed opportunities to collectors and enthusiasts, from the purchase of the libraries of Laurence Sterne in 1768, and Charles Dickens in 1870; the complete stock and copyright of the ornithologist and publisher John Gould; to the successful bid in 1980 for the final draft manuscript of Gilbert White’s Natural History of Selbourne, bought on behalf of the Gilbert White Museum.
