Our December sales totaled €3,313,938 including numerous books illustrated by Miró and bound by Paul Bonet, Leroux and P.L. Martin which exceeded their estimates alongside a splendid copy of Scènes de la vie privée by Balzac, bound with the symbol of Empress Marie-Louise, which achieved €32,500.
The sale of the Maurice Burrus collection on 15 December, where Renaissance book covers held a place of honour, brilliantly concluded the sale season led by a cover from 1552 made for the banker Marcus Fugger at €133,500. Furthermore, an edition of Chaucer illustrated by Burne-Jones and published by the Kelmscott Press, sold for the remarkable amount of €79,500.
Following the success of these sales, our specialists are currently inviting consignments to the upcoming auction. Please do not hesitate to contact Isabelle de Conihout or Patricia de Fougerolle for a free and confidential valuation of your books and manuscripts.
