In addition to the many rare and collectible modern books available on Biblio, we are also proud to present our booksellers' collection of antiquarian books printed in the 16th Century. Many of these featured books are printed in Italian, French, and Spanish, and many of them contain intricate and very rare illustrations. There was a greater variety in how books were bound, so many of the books offered here are bound in leather or cloth, which adds to their value and scarcity. Many books and ephemera printed in the 1500's are unique and one of a kind, and many contain fascinating glimpses into the cultures and lives of those present in that tumultuous period of history. Because of their age and delicacy, these books are quite fragile and require great care when handling. Be sure to read the book descriptions carefully and feel free to contact the bookseller directly should you have any questions about treatment or preservation, as you want to protect your investment as much as possible.
