Hans Brosamer, an old German engraver, was born at Fulda about the year 1506. On account of the small size of his prints he is ranked among what are called the Little Masters. He designed both on wood and copper, although he was properly a wood-engraver, signing himself on his portrait of the Landgrave of Hesse, 'Formschneider zu Erfurt,' where he resided during the latter part of his life. In his copper engravings his style is somewhat modern, and resembles rather the engravers who copied the designs of others than those of the earlier period, who invented their own subjects. He sometimes marked his plates with his name, and sometimes with a cipher.

After owning retail bookshops in Lucerne and Interlaken in Switzerland, as well as a online sale business, I am delighted to be back in the United Kingdom.
Having studied at Oxford University in the early 1980s I was lucky enough to learn about the rare book trade by scuttling around the markets and sale houses of London at a time when it was still quite possible to discover "that find". Similarly I was able to hone my specialist interests in early photography, the history of science and Helvetica, something that I hope is still reflected in the items I offer.
The aim is to offer the rare, interesting, unusual, beautiful and strange. So at the very least we hope your visit to the site to be a rewarding and enlightening experience!
