Mary Louise Bryan
Louise Bryan (Paralosgallery) is based in Nafplion, Greece. With over twenty-five years in the business, she began her career as manager of a shop in Cecil Court, specialising in music, opera and ballet prints, while at the same time travelling throughout Europe as a wholesale print-dealer. With Panagiotis Chantziaras she established Paralos Ltd. in London in 1997, working with the trade and private customers and dealing in antiquarian maps, prints and books. They were later joined by Tim Bryars, travelling and exhibiting widely from their London base.

With an amicable split Paralos Books in June 2004 Paralos moved to Greece, and Tim to his own shop in Cecil Court. Located first in Corfu, and then in central Athens, Paralos continued to deal internationally, holding one of the largest stocks of Greek material to be found anywhere.

In 2010 she and Panagiotis opened a new gallery in Nafplion Old Town. Louise remains a regular exhibitor at the London Map Fair at the Royal Geographical Society each June. Paralosgallery trades in antique maps, prints and books. The website listing is only part of the stock, if there is a particular item you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact Louise.
