Welcome to the
Rara Avis Antique Book Shop
the very first Polish antiquarian bookseller in the web
We are the very first Polish antiquarian bookseller in the web.
In our activities we focus on buying and selling antique books (published before 1945), maps, prints, posters and photographs. We organize Antique Books Auctions three times a year. We are interested especially in Polish Avant-garde editions.
Rara Avis Antique Book Shop and Auction House was founded in June 1992 by Zuzanna Migo-Rożek and Janusz Pawlak. We are a member of the International Federation of Dealer Associations CINOA and Polish Association of Book art Dealers SAiMP (Zuzanna Migo-Rożek served as its president between 2009-2015).
