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 (repainted in racing green) at the end of a farmyard, beyond the church, in the picturesque village of Steventon, south of Oxford. While some Covid19 restrictions are still in force, visitors are welcome by arrangement - please telephone first (01235 820604). 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. Recent catalogues have included books from the collections of the recently retired professors Rosamond McKitterick and Vincent Gillespie, and of the late Dr Peter Linehan (Catalogue 226, still available). We are also holding a June/July Jubilee half-price sale of some 1800 items from our older stock - please ask if you'd like to be sent the list by email. If you have any problems with website orders, please direct-email to, or telephone us.
