I publish approximately 10 lists per year which include rare books as well as periodicals covering the topics of architecture, landscape gardening, construction technique, interior design, furniture design, as well as design and typography. They can be acquired by post or via PDF download from this Web site.
On your request, I will gladly create an individual offer covering your individual areas of interest. Customers who have provided me with their collection focuses will be the first to be offered new acquisitions, either via postal letter or via email.
I will gladly look for individual books or publications on specific topics, which I will offer to you on a non-binding basis. In addition to research within the known trade databases, the year-long international contacts to colleagues, auction houses and collectors allow me access to a broad range of material. You will receive comprehensive information on availability and prices on the market.
I do not only purchase and sell books, but I also counsel customers and potential buyers comprehensively in terms of purchase, sale and maintenance of valuable antiquarian books.
For me, good counselling means providing customers of my antiquarian book store with professional, documented and transparent information.
For my customers these counselling services are for the most part free of charge. For researches, services and estimates which require more effort, I will charge a reasonable fee. For all fee-based services you request, I will provide a binding quotation, and, after your written consent, perform the agreed work.
On your behalf, I will look for relevant titles for your collection on the international antiquarian trade market and will represent your interests on book auctions. I will check the completeness and the condition of the books being offered. The safe and inexpensive shipment as well as information on the relevant customs and taxing regulations complement this counselling.
I determine and assess the value of your books, periodicals or architecture drawings in a competent and transparent manner. If desired and given the corresponding intrinsic value, your collection can be purchased as a whole for cash payment. If you want to sell books or collections, please contact me via phone, post or email. I purchase, assess and review complete libraries, not only in Germany but also abroad.
