Hodges Figgis – brought to book


Sir, – Hodges Figgis bookshop will commemorate its 250th anniversary next year, and as part of the celebrations, this autumn we will be publishing a literary anthology, in collaboration with Arlen House, and edited by Alan Hayes.

We would like to invite the public to send in their reminiscences of the bookshop and are particularly interested in any material people may have – photos, brochures, correspondence, books published by Hodges Figgis, etc.

Please feel free to email us at HodgesFiggis250@gmail.com or contact Tony Hayes in the Dawson Street shop by October 1st.

Hodges Figgis is one of the oldest bookshops in the world, and has been a constant supporter of Irish writing and publishing for 250 years.

We look forward to celebrating this wonderful milestone with your readers. – Yours, etc,


Hodges Figgis,

Dawson Street, Dublin 2.
