About

Leo Cadogan Rare Books Ltd specialises in unusual or iconic items - books, manuscripts, broadsides or pamphlets - from the cultural and intellectual life of the Renaissance and Early Modern periods. The business was established in 2007. Leo Cadogan (owner) entered the book trade straight out of university, in 1997. Before setting up on his own, he worked for two of London's finest antiquarian firms, and was manager of the antiquarian department of an important London bookshop. He also took time to do postgraduate studies in the Renaissance, gaining an MA and a reading ability in medieval European law.

We are members of the UK's ABA (Antiquarian Booksellers' Association), the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), and the PBFA (the UK's Provincial Booksellers' Fairs Association). We abide by their codes of conduct and ethics, whose coverage includes the proper description of books.

For any queries, please get in touch.
