Grim Auctions (pt.1)

March 28, 2009

As a veritable grimoire lover, I quite often search the worldwide web in pursuit of interesting antiquarian and collectible books. And also – being a guy with a modest income –  I frequently have to pull my own hair in agony when some nice reading material slips through my hands because my wallet is too empty, or worse, because I was too late. Here’s some really interesting stuff I saw passing by last month:

A copy of Le Grand Albert, printed in France (1752). It was sold for about US $500.


And a copy of Le Petit Albert, printed in France (1729), which went for about US $545.
