Very briefly ...
Blakeney Griffin Booksellers is a new business, founded this year, focused on buying and selling the highest quality first editions of the 20th century. It brings together Adam Blakeney, one of the leading dealers in 20th century English and American literature, his wife Holly, a specialist in children's literature, and Gerard Griffin, a collector (who has bought more than a few books from Adam over the years) and entrepreneur.
For the moment, we're based in Gerard's offices in Stratton Street, off Piccadilly.
Holly and Adam Blakeney (left, in embarrassing wedding photo) were previously at Peter Harrington Rare Books. Together they have 40 years of experience dealing in modern and children's literature.
Gerard Griffin, a finance professional, has been collecting modern firsts for close to 20 years.
