Antique & Collectible Books

Biblio is proud to present our collection of rare, antique, and collectible books available for purchase from our fine and reputable booksellers. Some of the antique books showcased date back to the 15th Century, and others hold significant historical and religious value. Antique books require special care and maintenance to preserve their special characteristics, and many of them are quite delicate. Also featured are particularly special and hard to find collectible books. Though they may not be antique, first editions or first printing of popular books are often quite collectible and rise in value over time. It is important to preserve the quality of these books as well, but they are generally more resistant to damage than the much older antique books.

1830 Franz Josef Haydn String Quartets Viola Score Classical MUSIC Folio Sonatas

An impressive, folio printing of the music of Franz Joseph Haydn.

Haydn is, without question, one of the most important and recognized figures in the history of classical music. Haydn's only mistake was composing and performing at the same time as Mozart. However, Haydn's music is still highly playable and enjoyed around the world.

This tome is the viola part to Haydn's string quartets and sonatas. These books were published around 1830 in Paris.

1694 Spanish Inquisition History of Cardinal Ximenes Catholic Church Flechier 2v
Esprit Fléchier was a 17th-century French author who composed two important historical works – the histories of Cardinal Ximenes and Emperor Theodosius I – which are known to be highly accurate and insightful. While known primarily for his written sermons, spiritual memoires, and religious writings, these historical works have been Flechier's most desirable works.
This book, 'Histoire de Cardinal Ximenes', is considered one of the best works on the life of the 15th-century Spanish cardinal. This work is also notable for describing the reforms during the Spanish Inquisition.

1699 1ed Idylls of Theocritus Ancient Greek Poetry Latin & Greek Scaliger Oxford

Theocritus was a 3rd-century BC Greek poet best known for writing pastoral poems. In fact, his Idylls are considered to be the first pastoral poems. They are still widely read today, much in part to fine 17th-century examples such as this 1699 Oxford printing. This particular edition is considerably noteworthy – it features both Latin and original Greek texts with translations and annotated notes by Joseph Scaliger, Isaac Casaubon, and Daniel Heinsius.
