The ALDE auction house organizes sales devoted to antiquarian and 19th century books every two months. This continues a tradition started over 100 years ago by the Giraud-Badin Bookstore with whom we work closely.
This fascinating field allows you to discover classical texts in their original condition and to explore the history of printing and bookbinding.
This area is particularly demanding and technical. This is because the correct dating of a binding or the identification of provenance are concrete elements that add real value to a book.
This is why ALDE teams up with recognized experts to organize sales that combine a rigorous choice of editions and particular care is taken in drafting sale descriptions.
Over many years we have developed an important network of collectors around the world and ALDE can present your books in optimal conditions.
ALDE is therefore at your disposal for any advice, inventory or sale that you may need in this area.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to include lots in a future sale.
