R RARE BOOKS
Books, are sources of passionate collecting and are divided into two categories: ancient or rare books and the so-called "modern antiques". The boundary line, between the two, is traditionally placed in the year 1830.
Up to that date, the book was considered an artisan object, with the advantages and disadvantages that follow; all its constituent parts (from the packaging of the paper to the binding) were the product of manual processes, which is why, up to the beginning of the 19th century, the average circulation was about 300 copies.
