 The Book Collector is a quarterly journal, in print and online, offering 192 pages per issue of wit, pleasure and knowledge on all aspects of the book through all ages. We have anything up to ten articles every time, book reviews, obituaries, prices at book auctions and a section on world-wide book chat. We’ve produced special issues on Ian Fleming (our founder), Polar Exploration and Women among Books. Our online archive, which goes back to 1947, is a resource for both students and academics that’s second to none.
