Primeira edição d'Os LusíadasOur bookshop was created in 1972 and, initially, sold predominantly new books, being only a small shop in the neighbourhood. As time went by, the management decided to move into the trade of old books, as a matter of natural preference. Today the old, curious and rare books constitute our main concern.

In Portugal, it is not possible to specialize in any particular field of the second hand book, but, in spite of that, our preferences go to art, regional and local themes, genealogy and especially ancient books of the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries.

It is increasingly more difficult to find these rare old books, but we have been privileged to having had in our shelves some of the rarest books of the classical literature.

On contemporary literature, including the modernists, we focus our attention on the most valuable copies or those which represent a landmark of that period. We also have a large interest on history of the period of the Discoveries and related subjects.

Last but not least, we would like to emphasize that we are always interested in acquiring libraries both in Portugal and abroad, as well as isolated books.
