With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Tesauro, D. Emanuel; Annotations of D. Valeriano Castiglione Del Regno D'Italia Sotto I Barbari
Venetia (Venice) Giacomo Hertz 1680 Hardcover Very Good 
12mo. [24], 732 pp + [72] unpaginated index. 58 engraved plates, 3 folding maps. Libreria Vinciana (Autori Italiani del 1600) 499. History of Italian monarchs during darkest of the Dark Ages, or the period following the fall of the Roman Empire til around 1000 A.D., a period obscure to even most ardent history buffs and scholars. Consulted by Manzoni in his research of Longobardi, or the Lombards. Each of the plates of ancient kings decorated with emblems and baroque ornamentation. Contemporary vellum attractive. Binding tight. Light soilage at most to leaves -- mostly just age toning. Discreet very old writing below half title plate and backside of same leaf. A small wormhole in upper left affecting pages in the 200s but only a few pages where actual letters are lost, and even these pages reading loss is insignificant. Overall a very good copy. 
Price: 500.00 USD
