Hungerford Arcade The Trouble With Authors

The Trouble with Authors:
Modern Manuscripts
Letters & Literary Archives

What a fabulous evening we had at Hungerford Arcade with Julian Rota, a fifth generation bookseller managing the family firm, Bertram Rota Ltd which was established in 1923 having had a succession of bookshops in London. The firm deals in antiquarian books of all kinds but specialises particularly in Modern First Editions.  

The company has a rich history of handling literary and archives, selling to national libraries, universities and other august institutions.  The list is endless. Many people came to meet Julian at the Arcade and had a very interesting chat over a nice glass of wine. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the talk given by Julian, lifting the lid on dealing with authors and their literary archives.  Which was very amusing. Afterwards, Julian was very pleased to value the antiquarian books people brought along for him to see.
