THE PRB&M PHOENIX

PRB&M & THIS SITE ARE
     IN TRANSITION . . .
   
Founded as a strictly antiquarian concern in 1984, establishing this website in 1997,
adding SessaBks in 2001, & welcoming visitors by appointment
at The Arsenal since 2006,
PRB&M greeted 2022 with a transition
from full-time, full-service antiquarian & general bookselling
to a NEW PRACTICE focused on
appraisal & valuation services (including IRS qualified appraisals),
other biblioconsulting services (with details to come),
& private bookselling via direct offer.

Let us blazon before you the motto of ILAB,
the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers:

THE LOVE OF BOOKS
UNITES US!

Yours,
as always,
David & Cynthy

The PRB&M PHOENIX DEVICE is that of Matteo Capcasa (di Codeca),
as taken from the title-page of Johannes Ferrariensis's work De coelesti vita,
printed by Capcasa in Venice, December 1494, for
Hieronymus Blondus.
