About

Welcome to Nuckley Rare Books. 

Nuckley Rare Books was founded in 2020 by Simon Nuckley. Simon sells a range of different titles from the rare and obscure to books on interesting subjects 

(but not necessarily expensive). Just because a book is scarce doesn’t mean it has to always  be expensive, but it maybe just the title you are after!  We also stock signed titles. 

About Simon

Simon’s fascination with antiquarian books goes back to an early age. At the age of 10 he purchased an odd volume in calf from 1683 from a shop in south London, with his Dad. Wind forward to 2013 and Simon joins Oxfam Bloomsbury as a volunteer pricing and researching books, which lead on to an internship with Chiswick Auctions in the book department and an internship with Shapero Rare Books in London. Simon then joined Chiswick Auctions with Nicholas Worskett in the book department becoming department head for a time, specialising in books and autographs. Simon decided  to leave the auction industry and to branch out on his own- selling on line. 

We hope you enjoy the site. 

With best wishes
