Welcome to our website www.librairiedescarres.com.

After the spring fairs and the publication of our special catalogue "Tous les Peuples du Monde" based on a major collection of ethnography books , our summer is already well occupied by the sorting and study of two recently acquired libraries. As always, we extend a warm welcome to those of our customers whose travels bring them to the banks of the Loire.

In late Autumn we shall be exhibiting at the annual Paris fair to be held in the Olympe de Gouges hall in the 11th district, from 22nd to 24th November. And from 6th to 8th December in the first edition of "Tours Livres Anciens", where some forty antiquarian booksellers will be present in the Town Hall. Centrally located and close to rail and road connections, this should be an excellent fair.

We look forward to seeing you at one or other of this venues, or -why not ? - chez nous, and wish you a happy - and not too hot - summer.
