Bertram Rota, now run by Julian Rota, is a family operation built on expertise built over multiple generations. Founder Bertram Rota, who started selling books on the Charing Cross road in 1923 just before his 20th birthday, learned the trade as an apprentice to his uncles Percy and Arthur Dobell in their father’s bookshop, which dated back to 1876. Old but not out-of-date, today they are bigger than ever, operating largely by mail order and online via their website as well as www.abebooks.com, where their entire collection is available to their international client base. Clients are welcome, by appointment, to visit their home office in West Berkshire, where they moved after 90 years in various London locations.
