Welcome to the web site of Laurence Oxley Ltd, 17, Broad St, Alresford, Hampshire. The bookshop was founded in 1950, and our business is to do with:-

  • New and second-hand books, including rare and collectable books:
  • Pictures: limited edition modern prints by, among others, Sam Toft and Debbie Boon, etchings by William Wyllie, and 19th Century watercolours.  Our special interest is the work of the Surrey artist, Birket Foster (1825-1899). We also stock a vast range of Vanity Fair (Spy etc) original prints.
  • Picture framing, done on the premises, picture cleaning and restoration.
  • Old and rare maps.  We keep a large range of fascinating old maps of the counties and abroad.  Please see Maps page or telephone us with any requests. 01962 732998.

Birket Foster, RWS (1825-1899)

Evening Scene with Shepherds and Sheep .  Painted by Birket Foster circa 1870.
Due to our long association with the work of the 19th Century British artist Birket Foster, and our consultancy work on the subject of Birket Foster with the London auction houses, we get requests from around the world to authenticate Birket Foster paintings. Opinion on attributed Birket Fosters currently costs £39 per picture inc VAT, and can usually be done from a good image.
