Bennett & Kerr Books

Welcome to Bennett and Kerr Books Website.

  Bennett & Kerr Books (ABA, ILAB) was begun in 1982 by Edmund Bennett & Andrew Kerr. We specialise in antiquarian, rare and scholarly books on the Middle Ages and Renascence, and issue regular catalogues (including some books not yet on this website). We have over eight thousand volumes in stock in our warehouse (recently repainted in racing green) at the end of a farmyard, beyond the church, in the picturesque village of Steventon, south of Oxford. Visitors are welcome - we are usually open 10 am - 5.30 pm (with a variable lunch-break) Monday-Friday, and for a shorter time on Saturday, but we recommend telephoning first (01235 820604) to avoid disappointment. The nearest rail station is Didcot, and the X2 bus runs Oxford-Didcot via Abingdon and Steventon; we are 15 minutes' walk down The Causeway from the bus stop, if you're not held up at the railway crossing. Our current catalogue (213) includes a couple of dozen facsimiles, as well as books on Italian humanism and on economic history - please ask if you'd like a copy - and we are now working on a selection of books from the collection of the late A I Doyle, Durham librarian. If you have any problem with website orders please direct-email to, or just telephone us.
