“I have known men to hazard their fortunes, go long journeys halfway about the world, forget friendships, even lie, cheat, and steal, all for the gain of a book.” ― A.S.W. Rosenbach

Growing up in a book shop with an antiquarian book dealer for a father made it inevitable that Edward Brooke-Hitching would embark on a journey to find the most eccentric and extraordinary books from around the globe. Books written in blood and books that kill, books invisible to the naked eye and books so long they could destroy the Universe, books worn into battle, books of code and cypher whose secrets remain undiscovered… and a few others that are just plain weird.

Join Edward as he leads us around a remarkable library of the world’s greatest literary curiosities.

Edward Brooke-Hitching will be appearing virtually.
