Welcome to our website

Autumn is suddenly upon us, the garden covered with a carpet of multicoloured leaves. But the leaves with which we are principally concerned are the pages of our catalogue n°41 to be published at the end of November. And also the leaves of the books we shall be offering at the "Salon du Livre Ancien, Salle Olympe de Gouges, Paris XIème", from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th November; and at the new bookfair "Tours Livres Anciens" to be held in the beautiful town hall of the city of Tours (37000) from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th December, with some 43 antiquarian booksellers present.

We look forward to seeing you at one or other of these venues, or - why not ? - chez nous in Gennes where you are always welcome.
