"A precious—mouldering pleasure—'tis— To meet an Antique Book— In just the Dress his Century wore— A privilege—I think—"
Nothing can better describe the philosophy of our business than the famous lines of Emily Dickinson. To us an ancient book is a living relic that has come down to us intact, complete in every aspect of its original charm. An antique book is printing, paper, binding and aroma.
