Rare Antique & Collectible Books Rare & Antiquarian 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.
