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.

Amsterdam Appresso Lodovico Elzevier 1640 Vellum Very Good Plus 
48mo - over 3 - 4" tall. 285 pp. Engraved title page + 3 additional full page engraved plates, with names of characters written underneath figures.

Printing possibly by Willem Blaeu of Elzevier. Final pages have worm hole, which diminishes to pinhole sized loss on text pages in two-thirds of leaves in lower margin. On a few leaves loss of a few letters but text remains readable. Other than this leaves are clean. Period vellum has some wear, blistering and limpness. Still an asset to the book. New attractive endpapers.
