Antiquarian and rare bookshop in Paris
Located in Paris (6th district), Camille Sourget Bookshop is an Antique and Rare Bookshop. We are specialized in buying and selling rare and precious books from the fifteenth to the beginning of the twentieth century.
Immersed in a world of antiquarian books from an early age, Camille Sourget decides very early to become a bookseller. After enriching her studies in art history and a year spent in London, she started working in her parents’ prestigious bookshop in 2001.
Eager to broaden her horizons to the different aspects of the profession, she then spent a year and a half deepening her knowledge of books with the greatest international dealers, in Paris and in New York.
Back in France in 2005, she finally created her own structure in Paris, eager to put her various experiences to good use. She first opened a “bookshop-apartment” at 1 rue du dragon, then inaugurated in 2008 a shop with a street corner at 93 rue de Seine, in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It is at this address that she welcomes you with enthusiasm and professionalism since then.
Its specialties are literary first editions, natural sciences, travel books and atlases, history, and all the beautiful illustrated books from the 15th to the beginning of the 20th century. The Camille Sourget bookshop participates in various international fairs, including the prestigious TEFAF in Maastricht, Fine Arts Paris / La Biennale, the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, the Salon du Livre Ancien in Paris at the Grand Palais, etc.
