Architecture More than 100 books and manuscripts on architecture, including more than 50 items offered at reduced prices. Spanning decades, highlights include strikingly designed issues of “Wendingen,” edited by Dutch architect Hendricus Wijdeveld; numerous works by Serlio, Vignola, Vitruvius; and original drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Incunabula Incunabula is defined by John Carter and Nicholas Barker (“ABC for Book Collectors”) as the Latin description of early books as printed in cunabulis (in the swaddling clothes) of the new-born art of printing, or, books printed before 1501. Elegant, no? Highlights include the first complete Theocritus, the first collected edition of the sermons of St. Augustine, Lyonese incunables with similar Sisteron provenance (and in very curious bindings), collections of inuncable leaves, and more.
Fashion & Costume Our first ever September Issue, featuring books, manuscripts, and photo albums devoted entirely to costume and fashion.
Travel Shown in random order, this catalogue of thirty-nine items includes books, photo albums, scrapbooks, manuscript travelogues, locations far-flung and little (or much) traversed, exploration, and a rare portrait of Christopher Columbus.
