About us

Henry Pordes has been a famous name in the book trade for more than fifty years. As a bookseller, publisher of learned periodicals, academic titles, Jewish books, as well as a wholesaler of remainders, the name Henry Pordes is renowned throughout the bookselling world.

The bookshop is now run by Rita Servidio and Francesco Ponti.


The staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and carry the whereabouts of most of the book stock in their heads! It is still an old-fashioned shop with old-fashioned service but with modern methods.


We are a member of the PBFA.
