About Sylco bvba livres anciens - antiquarian books

Fine and rare books in the fields of science, medicine, technology and the applied arts. Old fashioned printed catalogues and lists available on request.A note on binding conservation. All our ancient leather bindings are carefully cleaned with Brecknell's leather soap, and when needed, treated with hydroxypropylcellulose (in the case of dry leather). Finally we protect the leather with \"Cire 213\", the ultimate binding conservation wax developed by the BNF (Bibliothque nationale de France).
