A magical artfair under the glass dome of the Grand Palais for the Bookshop Camille Sourget.


This year the Bookshop Camille Sourget had once again the privilege to represent bibliophily at the Biennale Paris, the not-to-be-missed event of the art market, which took place from 8 until 16 September.

It was the perfect opportunity for us to show our most beautiful books in a wonderful spot, this year decorated by the talented Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.

Amongst our treasures were visible a sumptuous Venetian binding on a dogale made in Venice in 1597 which earned the price of the second most beautiful artpiece of the fair, as well as an exceptional collection of Piranesi’s works in 27 volumes with 1189 amazing engravings.

Their presence was noted, as reflected in this insight of a few press articles mentioning them:

The Art Newspaper, 14 September 2018: https://www.theartnewspaper.com/gallery/la-biennale-picks

Beaux-Arts magazine, September: https://www.beauxarts.com/produit/beaux-arts-magazine-n411/

We wish you a pleasant read and hope to see you soon on the various fairs we will take part in, but also at our bookshop located rue de Seine in Paris, where we will welcome you with open arms!

Springtime has arrived at the bookshop Camille Sourget.


We invited spring to settle earlier in the window of our bookshop for a few weeks, in order to bring you a bit of spring sunshine and warmth.


Flowers will have the leading role during these weeks: Larmession, dressed in his "Habit de Jardinier" will introduce you to Loudon's different varieties of flowers and Rousseau's crocus. Take note of Morin's advises regarding his Remarques nécessaires pour la culture des fleurs while you will discover the sunny views of Sams' Paris. A Promenade in the gardens of Chantilly with Merigot might be the occasion to spot one of Robert and Johnson's splendid birds. Don't leave before you have heard Du Bellay and Verlaine recite their poems to the glory of spring...

Italy is in the air...


This week, Italy has the place of honour at the bookshop Camille Sourget !

Come on a trip with us to the 'beautiful country" as Dante would have said and dicover or rediscover some of the most iconic works of Italian bibliophily.

Listen to Stendhal talking to you about the History of painting in Italy or loose yourself in the comtemplation of the splendid series of Tuscan costumes of the 18th century by Bicci. Discover the delicacy of Venitian lace in the work that Titien's pupil has made about it or learn the art of playing cards in the book that Marcolini has made with not less than 11 250 cards for the marquise Victor Casati Ardizzone. Or maybe you would prefer to bury yourself in "the most accomplished monument of Cervantes' narrative work, with the first Italian edition of Il Novelliere Castigliano?
