Catalogue IX

Published: 29 September 2016

Price: £15 + P&P

We are pleased to announce the publication of Catalogue IX, released for both the opening of our New York gallery and the inaugural TEFAF fair in New York. Fittingly, many of the items in the catalogue deal with new frontiers, from a copy of the terms of Columbus’s journey to America to a globe showing one woman’s plans for a socialist utopia on Mars.

Catalogue VIII: Views of London

Published: 14 September 2016

Price: £15 + P&P

In 2011, Daniel Crouch Rare Books produced a catalogue of maps showing London from 1574 to the present day. In 2016, we return to the capital, but this time, with a catalogue of prints.

Catalogue VII

Published: 9 October 2015

Price: £15 + P&P

Welcome to Catalogue VII, published on our fifth anniversary. To mark this occasion we have selected from our inventory the most spectacular examples in each of the fields in which we specialise – atlases, maps, globes, voyages, and scientific instruments. Each item is distinguished by its historical interest, rarity, or beauty. The most exceptional combine all three, like the pair of Blaeu globes made for Schloss Baldern in Germany (item 46). All represent pinnacles of human achievement, created by the most gifted scholars and craftsmen of their time.

Catalogue VI

Published: 4 April 2014

Price: £15 + P&P

Catalogue VI represents something of a departure for Daniel Crouch Rare Books. In the year that marks 300 years since the passing of the Longitude Act, and the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web, we thought it a good time to put together a collection of calculating machines from the first information revolution.

Catalogue V

Published: 15 March 2013

Price: £15 + P&P

Welcome to the fifth catalogue from Daniel Crouch Rare Books. The catalogue comprises a selection of the items that we will be exhibiting at the 26th European Fine Art and Antiques Fair in Maastricht and, as a consequence, it has an undeniably Dutch feel about it.

Catalogue IV

Published: 1 March 2012

Sold out

In celebration of The European Fine Art Fair’s 25th anniversary, we are proud to present 25 spectacular items from the first four hundred years of the history of printing.

Catalogue III: Mapping London

Published: 1 November 2011

Price: £15 + P&P

Welcome to the third catalogue from Daniel Crouch Rare Books. Within these pages you will find 100 plans showing London’s rapid development, from the Tudors to the Windsors. You will see London the glutton, purged by fire, the home of the rich as well as the poor, and a refuge and opportunity for strangers; a city not dissimilar to the one we inhabit ourselves.

Catalogue II

Published: 1 July 2011

Price: £15 + P&P

For our second catalogue, we are proud to present a selection of rare and important atlases, sea atlases, wall maps, manuscript maps, and voyages.

Catalogue I: The Gestetner Collection of Maritime Atlases & Voyages

Published: 1 November 2010

Sold out

For our inaugural catalogue we are proud to offer the Gestetner Collection of maritime atlases and voyages. Undoubtedly one of the best libraries of sea atlases in private hands, the books are remarkable both for their exceptional quality and their rarity. The Gestetner family started building a collection of maritime atlases and voyages twenty years ago to celebrate their love of sailing and the many happy times they had spent together on their various boats, all named Grumpy Skipper’.
