"Antiquaires: The Finest Antique Dealers In Paris" 2000 GAILLEMIN, Jean-Louis


[230] pp.



12" x 9 3/4"

Jean-Louis Gaillemin recounts the fascinating history of antique dealing. He provides a tantalizing account of how, when and, why, over the past two centuries, Paris -- the world capital of the antiques market -- attributed, or denied, certain antiques and antique dealers their popularity and reputation. To complement this historical account, the book includes a practical guide which lists addresses of dealers, organized by district and speciality, as well as key museums.
