HS Rare Books & Maps
We are a relatively new firm in the trade, based in Buenos Aires and members of the ABA (Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association), ALADA (Asociación de Libreros Anticuarios de Argentina) and ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers).

The Firm specializes in Early Exploration & Travel, Jesuit Relations & Vocabularies, South American Iconography, and general antiquarian books in several fields’ – as fine bindings, history and sciences.

Regarding Exploration and Travel, we pride ourselves on having strong holdings on Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay; Colombia, Venezuela and Central America are well represented. South East Asia is also a stronghold on our stock.

Early imprints, mainly of Jesuit printing houses – some clandestine – from around the Globe in the era of colonization and evangelization, are as well one of our most sought after subjects.

We normally visit the New York, London and Madrid Book Fairs, we are happy to represent at auction and advice whether on the creation or continuity of a collection.
