Sale information


Among the most learned Norman libraries, there is one that was compiled by a man who loved Normandy, and which remains without question one of the richest today.

Monsieur S. was interested in the history of his adopted country, focusing his research primarily on Calvados, but extending it to neighboring departments when it came to popular traditions or, of course, Norman literature, whose best authors he loved to acquire in their original or beautifully illustrated editions.

All these books can be found in their original bindings or, when this was not the case, bound by the best contemporary bookbinders from Normandy and Paris.
