Santa's Lap: Rare London Books & Prints

Santa's Lap: Rare London Books & Prints

Every day until Christmas we will be pointing you in the direction of a London-inspired Christmas present that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

There have been some fantastic books about London published this year. But if your Londony library is as well-stocked as Londonist's you might need to look for something rarer to get your literary kicks this Christmas. We had a word with Fulham Road based antiquarian bookseller, Peter Harrington, to see what (relatively affordable) treasures they had to offer. Click through the gallery for some examples, including one rarity with a *gulp* price tag.

They also have a stock of rare London prints and maps, although you're probably looking at several hundreds of pounds for that kind of gift. Drop by the shop or check the website to find out more - they're very friendly.
