Rare Book Monthly Reviews - May - 2022 Issue

Books and Autographs from Michel Bouvier

Michel Bouvier has issued Catalogue 78 Livres et Autographes (Books and Autographs). Bouvier is a French bookseller, located in Paris. You will want to brush up on your French if that is not your native language as the catalogue is written in the language. That is true of most of the books too. They are presented in chronological order with six centuries represented. Dates range from 1529-2002. The great majority can readily be classified as antiquarian. Subject matter varies so there will likely be something for just about everyone in this collection. These are a few examples.
