New catalogue New York bookfair 2019Published on 26 Feb. 2019
This year we are particularly proud of our catalogue because of its
diversity and the rarity of the material offered.
Therefore it might be worth your time to take a peek in our catalogue
and see if you can find something that you might like. The
catalogue is divided in simple sections: Manuscripts up to 1600,
1600-1800, present day, followed by Printed Books of 15th till 20th
century. There are two final sections covering voyages & exploration
and maps, photographs and prints.
I would add as well we are bringing considerable material to the NYC
Fair that is not in our catalogue (latest acquisitions etc.) so we
look forward to see
you at Booth A16.

Musinsky 2015 / IPublished on 06 Feb. 2015
Please find herewith our first e-catalogue for 2015. It contains 27 items from the 15th century to 1850, largely recent acquisitions. The highlights are two sixteenth-century German illustrated vernacular story collections, both legendary rarities, and a splendid copy of the first edition of Wendel Dietterlin’s earliest architectural design books, which foreshadowed surrealism and perspective-bending artists like Escher.
Also in the catalogue are a board game for determining one’s career path for 19th-century teenagers; a thieving bibliophile’s magnum opus on world languages, in a presentation copy to the French royal pretender; a 16th-century astrology manual in a contemporary dyed vellum flap (or “wallet”) binding; a guide to relics with advice on how to contemplate them; a pair of prostitutes’ laments on improved lighting in Paris streets; a typological treatise containing engraved models for stained glass; and other oddities of which you will find few if any copies elsewhere, either in OCLC, in Via Libri, or in digitized formats.
