    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.

    Période de profondes mutations, la civilisation de la Renaissance aura totalement renouvelé la conception du livre au cours des décennies qui la constituent.
    Aucune autre période de l’histoire du livre n’a vécu autant de
    changements et d’innovations, du post-incunable gothique (imitant encore le manuscrit médiéval) et
    des premières expériences des Alde à Venise, des conquêtes de la typographie et de la mise en page (le
    livre actuel en porte encore les traces) aux dernières
    impressions de la fin du XVIe siècle, de l’évolution des
    reliures, du livre religieux et érudit au livre commercial
    et divertissant dont le XVIe a fixé les règles, l’ouvrage
    de la Renaissance témoigne de ce qui fut pour
    l’Europe son Antiquité.
    On ne dénombrait pas moins de vingt millions
    d’ouvrages circulant en Europe à la fin du XVIe siècle,
    mais les multiples conflits et les guerres ont réduit
    cette extraordinaire production à une peau de chagrin,
    et les livres sont devenus fort rares aujourd’hui.
    C’est la raison pour laquelle la librairie est heureuse
    d’offrir ce voyage intellectuel au sein de cette
    civilisation disparue à ses amis bibliophiles.
