About us

I have been trading in valuable antiquarian books, periodicals and documents in the fields of architecture, design and art history since the foundation of my antiquarian bookstore in 1985 for clients all over the world.

Today, running a specialized antiquarian bookstore means to passionately look for and find interesting books on the international market as well as in the private sector.

In addition to finding the known works, discovering titles, that have been hitherto unknown to me, remains to be a constant motivation and a source of new insights.

The primary focus of my offering lies on regularly published illustrated lists, available as a print copy or as a PDF file. This is complemented by individual offers, tailored to my customers’ collecting areas.

I provide advice to my customers for the acquisition of items, and I am specifically looking for architecture books and picture resources for libraries, museums, architects and collectors.

My researches are not limited to the known trade databases, but also make use of my long-year international contacts to collectors, fellow antiquarians and auction houses.

To me, counselling means providing my customers with documented and verifiable information. In addition, it means to transparently represent the individual significance, rareness and market value.

When required, you can access all relevant information on the following topics: Restoration and maintenance of books and graphics; import and export regulations; quick and safe shipment of valuable books.

Under “Information” on this page you can find a number of interesting Internet sources and information about valuable original editions of architecture books.


Please regard the following pages as some sort of display window for my antiquarian bookstore.

They include a selection from my inventory and also display a cross-section of books my customers have already purchased. Any item for which a price is being displayed is available (unless having been sold in the meantime).

I do not only sell rare original editions, but I am also always ready to purchase works which are known, and of course also those hitherto unknown to me. I determine and assess the value of your books, periodicals or architecture drawings in a competent and transparent manner. Please contact me via phone, post or email if you want to sell books or collections.

I am looking forward to your message.
