Books and Prints

Top Lots
Maison Bibelot organizes periodically important auctions of antique books and prints whose catalogues often include lots of hystorical and artistic importance as manuscripts, incunables and rare prints and incisions.

The experts of our books and prints auctions department select to include in our auctions, besides antique books and prints, also modern and contemporary art books, that are dedicated to collectors and to all those who have a passion for written artworks.
