Buy fewer things, but make them the highest quality you can.

We give this advice regularly and devote the better part of our time searching out the finest and most interesting manuscripts, ones that cannot be found anywhere else, many of which themselves played a formative role in the chronicles of their times. It is the hunt for these treasures of history that has turned a passion into a business, a passion we enjoy sharing.

Quality defines value.

We have decades of experience measuring the caliber of an item’s content or importance, and that assessment is crucial. How can you measure something as subjective as the degree to which these factors are present? We have developed guidelines, and with some common sense added in, we apply them and share them with clients and those interested in this fascinating field.
