Lord Durham Rare Books (LDRB) Monthly ITEM OFFERS;

The major rationale for no traditional catalogues, there is too much information, choices and options for many collectors today who often don't have the time to go through the growing mountain of dealer catalogues and exploding auction items now available. Having online wants  where you get emails back if a title you are searching for becomes available certainly helps however,  do you cover all the lists available? Even if you find the title wanted, will you find it first? How many times did you order an item to be told "sorry, just sold"? Wise collectors today think in terms of who  can assit and help them find, obtain and build their collection. This certainly includes occationally finding an elxusive item much wanted. I started to offer that assistance in 2008 and have helped many collectors. Collectors have many more choices today and who you ask to assit you is one of the most important as many have discovered.

For both our private collectors and institutional collectors we provide targeted offerings their known interest or focus is in. We provide detailed descriptions and a number of photos for each of these offerings.

We do this much more effectively with collectors who share with us what their collecting interests are, what they have in their collection already and of course any WANTS they are specifically looking for. The more we understand your collection, the more effective we can be in assiting you.

There is a basic WANTS form to begin the collecting discussion process or you can call me at 905.680.8115 or email me at You can also register an account on this web site to communicate and update your collecting interests.
We assit you in your collecting and add value, fun and a high degree of interest in your collecting journey.

Don't you wish you could just talk to a knowledgeable person to ask questions and get an opinion or point of view. I come from a long collecting background and have a ton of empathy. Let me share my knowledge and learning and learn much more about your collection.

For collectors who prefer do just browse, we offer e-Categories to browse immediately below this article.  There is an advanced search page to look for specific tiles, authors or keywords.

Please consider letting us assit you on your collecting journey including finding any elusive items you just can't seem to find. Helping collectors collect is what we do best!
