Rare Book Monthly Reviews - February - 2022 Issue


81 Precious Books from Librairie Clavreuil and Stéphane Clavreuil Rare Books

Librairie Clavreuil of Paris, along with Stephane Clavreuil Rare Books of London, have combined to create a spectacular catalogue, 81 Livres Précieux (81 Precious Books). It features “Incunables, Sciences, Voyages, Littérature, Gastronomie 1473-1955.” That requires no translation for English speakers.
