First Editions UK has been in existence in some form or another since 1997 when Gareth Newton first started building his own collection of modern 1st editions and selling on those that were surplus to needs or simply didn’t fit into the collection.
Over the years Gareth fine-tuned his skills of rooting out rare and special editions to add to his collection. This is also undertaken for a few discerning clients across the world. This gradually transformed what was originally a hobby into a developing business.
Whether purchasing books for his own collection or adding to those of clients the over-arching principles of thorough research, friendly and honest advice, and sourcing the best copies available wherever possible has always been at the heart of the business. Over the past 10 years or so the business has been joined by an enthusiastic newcomer – Sebastian Newton, who has been busy building his own collection of modern 1st editions with a focus on authors such as Terry Pratchett, Bernard Cornwell and J.R.R. Tolkien amongst others.
First Editions UK deal in a wide range of first editions. These span modern firsts and children’s & illustrated books to a growing selection of first editions on the subject of mountaineering. We have been privileged also to add to our selection available a number of books signed by the author and thus making the books that little bit extra special.Whether buying books from us to add to your own collection or as a gift for a friend or relative you can rest assured you will always receive a first class level of customer service to address your every need.
