Matthew Haley

Matthew Haley is head of Books and Manuscripts at Bonhams auctioneers. After graduation from Oxford University, he worked in the University's Taylor Institution Library. An undergraduate interest in Virginia Woolf led to curiosity about the Hogarth Press, antiquarian booksellers' catalogs, and the wider world of rare books.

In 2004, he joined Bonhams in London, then transferred to New York for four years, and returned to the UK in 2013. A regular on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, Matthew still loves to roll up his sleeves and get dusty with old books.
