About Govi Rare Books LLC
My main fields of interest are manuscripts, incunabula and 16th century books. A thorough understanding of classical languages (particularly Latin) and of the main languages of Western culture (English, Italian, French, Spanish and German) allows us to deal with books and to utilize the scientific publications printed in these languages. After graduating in classical studies at the University of Bologna, I have deepened my knowledge in the field of antiquarian books, attending courses at the École de l'Institut d'Histoire du Livre of Lyon, concerning physical bibliography and printing types, and at Merton College in Oxford on the study of paper. I have been for several years committee member and treasurer of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of Italy and, from 2010 to 2015, its president. I am currently a member of the ILAB's committee and the secretary to the Breslauer prize for bibliography.
