About Us

West Hull Rare Books are highly respected and reputable dealers in modern First Edition titles, and children’s books, with an emphasis on signed first edition books and inscribed titles. We began back in the early 1990′s as a collector, buying books for my private collection. Whilst this fueled our love for books and provided the background knowledge needed to look at potentially making book dealing more of a career, it also gave us valuable insight on how book collectors think and operate, and we believe this experience is vital when creating long term relationships with customers. The progression to being full time book dealers in our own right came in 2003, after we had amassed around 10 years of collecting. We believe that our journey from collector to being a professional full-time bookseller helps us provide that extra special level of understanding with our customers, and we believe that this is why we have developed long standing customer relationships already.
