In April will take place the marvellous "International Rare Books and Fine Art Salon" in the Paris Grand-Palais, from 12th - 14th April. Here you will find over one hundred and fifty antiquarian booksellers from all over the world and we hope you can visit us on stand G15.

On 27th and 28th April we will then attend the 7th Le Mans book fair in the beautiful historical building of the city town hall.

The rest of the time we will be "chez nous", where we are always delighted to receive visitors wishing to discover our books, and our delicious Angevine environment.
