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.

St. Petersburg Izdatelstvo "Kleo" 2000 Full Calf Fine 
Russian miniature book full of Art Nouveau vignettes from an array of Russian artists, all executed at the turn of the twentieth century -- most are from the first decade of the 20th century. The imagery is full of enchantment, variety and imaginativeness. The publication honors an artistic past that Russians could at last imbibe freely with the fall of the Soviet Union, and it demonstrates how connected the Russians were at the time to the prevailing artistic winds sweeping Europe and America while somehow preserving a certain wonderful Russian otherness. Here one will find represented the celebrated Bilibin but also many names obscure in the West. WIth a gorgeous Art Nouveau cover. One doesn't have to know any Russian to appreciate, enjoy and use this exquisite book.
