Rare Books at the Winter Antiques Show

boh-102---f30v-31_l.jpgOpening this coming weekend is New York's famous Winter Antiques Show, held at the Park Avenue Armory from the 22nd-31st. A collector recently told me that she purchased the very first book in her collection after a visit to this show, about fifteen years ago. So what does it have to offer for collectors of rare books, manuscripts, and maps this year? For starters, Les Enluminures will be there, with an offering of medieval manuscripts, such as the Book of Hours, c. 1490, pictured here. Daniel Crouch Rare Books will also be exhibiting, as will Thomas Heneage Art Books, Arader Galleries, and The Old Print Shop. If you are in town, it's definitely worth checking out!
