Welcome to our website

Summer has arrived and with it our annual inventory, during which we have noted a certain number of books unjustifiably gathering dust on the shelves.
In order to give them a new lease of life we have concocted a special list of good books at (very) reduced prices.
Have a look, perhaps there is something for you?
In late Autumn we shall be exhibiting at the 23rd antiquarian book fair organized by the Lions’ Club at the Salle Olympe de Gouges, Paris 11th.
The fair will run from 22nd to 25th November, and entrance is free.
In the meantime we are « chez nous » and always very happy to welcome visitors to our book shop and our glorious corner of France, along the Loire Valley.
Happy Summer!
