Since its foundation in 1994, the Antiquariat Michael Kühn has specialized in early printed books on the exact sciences, natural history, medicine and technology.
Whilst our focus is science, we deal also in a broad range of antiquarian books across all subject areas. Other fields that have been added in recent years are architecture, photography and art. Our bias is towards the unusual, the interesting and the important in print and in manuscript. We exhibit at major book fairs throughout the year as a member the Verband Deutscher Antiquare (VDA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).

ABOUT

In my selection of rare and valuable books, manuscripts and original artworks, I do not only focus on milestone books that changed the world, although I have handled them.
My bias is towards the unusual, the interesting and the important in print and in manuscript, focusing on works with special history or special printing technique as well as from important or even forgotten personalities who tried to understand and change the world. To find these works, to describe them properly and finally to offer them to my international institutional and private customers is my passion. I hope to give an idea of these pleasures to my customers.

I will issue occasional printed catalogues together with online lists and catalogues and I exhibit at book fairs throughout the year.
We are open by appointment but can always be contacted by email or telephone for inquiries, offers and advice. If you are looking for something in particular, please contact me. We are keen to buy outstanding items in most fields and will always travel to view a collection or individual items.


„The real reason that people collect things: because they love them. It doesn’t matter why, if they even know why; it doesn’t matter if these things are obsolete or ungainly or ugly, that they cost far too much and take up a ridiculous amount of space and serve absolutely no practical purpose whatsoever. In love, as in collecting, irrationality reigns supreme. Sometimes you end up happily married to that blind date who was not all that you’d expected or hoped for, the one who didn’t possess a single trait on that long list you were always carrying around, of qualities your potential mate absolutely had to have, and when the two of you walk down the street with your arms around each other, people just stare open-mouthed and scratch their heads in wonder. Good for you.“
