Mantova, rare books and prints

Sept 18-19, 2021

View of Mantova

The first participation of Hermes Rare Books to an important fair of rare books. With a selection of early prints and first editions, including Dante’s Divine Comedy 1564 and Ptolemy by Magini 1597-1598.

With a wonderful weather lot of librarians, collectors and aficionados visited the fair triggering the interest of local TV and journalists.

The beautiful cloister hosting the Books and Map Fair was an opportunity for Teodoro and myself to discover curiosities beyond books, including globes and stereoscopes… Teo is proud behind the 1564 Comedia..
