My offer is intended to appeal to scholars and lawyers as well as laymen interested in science. It is intended to be an attractive contact point for academic libraries as well as for passionate private collectors and bibliophiles.

The small series “AVKB-Edition” will additionally bring together some texts, monographs and bibliographies that are out of print or difficult to access and make them available as reprints in hardback book form.

Glossary and Bibliographies

Bibliographies are part of all bibliophiles‘ toolkit and allow a broader overview and deeper penetration into specific thematic areas of collection. I would like to list such bibliographies here or - smaller bibliographic works - make them available for download. Furthermore, for a better understanding of the title entries, the abbreviations commonly used in antiquarian bookshops will be presented with their corresponding translations.
