We have been on the market for over a dozen years, collecting an impressive collection of unique works printed in Poland hundreds of years ago.

All items come from legal sources - we can even issue a company certificate confirming the authenticity and originality of each item in our offer. Our assortment includes unique items on the bibliophile market, rare books and old prints, but also luxurious leather binding. A few notes for collectors from abroad. The rarity of Polish books. We make every effort to ensure that the facilities we offer are accurately described and photographed.Due to the history of the Polish state abounding in various armed conflicts, several partitions and partitions of Poland [when the country disappeared from the maps of the world and its culture was destroyed by the occupant], then the 2 world wars, followed by the time of sovietization and the People's Republic of Poland, antique books in Polish language are usually much more rare than their alternative editions in the world. When there are many copies of The Little Prince in the first edition on the international market, the first Polish edition from 1947 is a real rarity. When there are many copies of Kuba in the world, the Polish pre-war edition has appeared on the market several times in the last 25 years. It should also be added that in Poland we sometimes compromise by adding a title card or other cards or dust jacket in a copy [which of course is always marked], because for some titles it may not be possible to find a complete copy in life.
