Exciting news for all who are interested in Mallorca and the Baleares. Salas de Subastas Soler y Llach, a Spanish auction house in Barcelona, is doing an elaborate antique book sale on Tuesday, April 27th. You could bid for a rare first edition of Un Hiver À Majorque (1864), by George Sand, or an unusual Isla de Mallorca (1845), by Juan Cortada, or a remarkable Voyages dans les Iles Baleares et Pithiuses (1807), by André Grasset de St.-Sauveur. People more interested in maps can find an extremely rare map of Catalunya by Joannes Blaeu from 1640, or a nice old etching of the Port of Palma from 1764, done by J. Roux. Starting prices are not too outrageous considering the lots’ age and rarity.
