Partners with over 50 years experience, we are major reprinters of academic journals and specialize in the supply of reprints, antiquarian backsets, back volumes and back issues of out-of-print journals and serials.

Our carefully selected stock of journal reprints and antiquarian backsets in the major western languages is the largest in the world. In many cases, we can supply from the very first volume up to and including 2019.

Many important publishers rely on us to guarantee their back volumes and back issues remain available. You can view a selective list here.
