View Specialist Bio

Born in England in 1953, Edward Ripley-Duggan began in the book trade in 1975, after a heterogeneous career that included a stint in the chemical industry. He ran a general antiquarian shop for six years, before starting a catalogue-based rare book business. For over 25 years subsequently he specialized in typographically distinguished books of all periods; illustrated books of the 18th to 20th centuries, with an emphasis on French and English artist books; and bookbinding as an art form.

He has been a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America for well over a quarter-century, and has published over forty rare book catalogues. He has supplied material to many major institutional and private collections, with offerings such as a perfect Second Folio of Shakespeare; major collections of livres dartiste; private press books and modern designer bindings; Eadweard Muybridges famously rare photographic album of Central America; and countless other books of exceptional quality.

He was editor in 1989 of the publication Book Arts Collections, a scholarly survey of fine printing and illustrated books in American institutions, and has written articles on various aspects of books and book collecting. He also co-organized two major colloquia for book collectors at The Grolier Club (one with the late Stephen Jay Gould as keynote speaker).
