Liz Merry (Consultant)
Liz Merry's love of books began as a child, when she spent
long periods confined to bed and read voraciously to pass the time.
After gaining her degree, she learned the book trade at Bernard
Quaritch, the London firm of antiquarian booksellers, before
working for Christie's in Europe and London. For ten years she was
an independent consultant before joining Phillips as director of
the Book Department in 1990, returning to freelancing in 2002. She
has undertaken valuation work for the National Heritage Lottery
Fund. Her favourite areas include books on natural history and
herbals, and she is also a keen plantswoman and walker. Liz usually
comes in on a Monday or Tuesday at the beginning of the month. For
an appointment to see her please ring 01722 424592.
