Leo Cadogan

Leo Cadogan's interest in rare books began at the end of his degree at Oxford University, when he took a summer job which included dusting the shelves of his college's senior library.

He worked afterwards in the English literature department of  Bernard Quaritch Limited and subsequently for the early continental books dealer Christopher Sokol. After an M.A. in Renaissance studies at the Warburg Institute, University of London, he worked for Unsworth's Rare Books, specialists in classics and early printing, managing also a rare books concession at Foyle's bookshop, and continuing graduate studies in medieval and Renaissance legal history. His own business (founded 2007) is focussed on cultural and intellectual history, mostly continental European, pre-1800, with an eye to items that are unusual or iconic.
