London — It is our pleasure to inform you that Edward Nassau Lake is, from 1st January, joining Brian Lake and Janet Nassau as a partner in Jarndyce Antiquarian Booksellers, Bloomsbury.
Ed has worked in the family firm for fifteen years and demonstrated not only that he is a knowledgeable bookseller who has greatly enhanced the business, but is also committed for the long term to take Jarndyce into a second generation.

Ed comments: “It is a privilege for me to join the partnership of a business created by my father with Christopher Johnson in 1969 - and since the late 1970s developed by both my parents working together – which has grown, with the hard work and love from all those who have been involved with us, to become one of the leading companies in its field.  
I look forward to continuing to develop the business, working with our fantastic team, and helping to shape a rare book trade to reflect our changing society.
In particular, it has given me great pleasure to establish Jarndyce at international book fairs, to enhance the design of our catalogues, to oversee the growth of the Jarndyce team and to guide the partnership to a greater presence on-line, while remaining committed to our core catalogue business.”
