Librairie Loeb-Larocque specializes in maps, atlases and travel books from the 16th - 19th centuries.
The Librairie was founded in 1958 by Béatrice's father Louis
Loeb-Larocque. Originally he arrived in France from Germany shortly after World War II. He first started an antiquarian map and book shop in
Paris. He built a company that specialized
in early maps, atlases, travel books and prints. The shop was located at
Rue Le Peletier in Paris until Béatrice's father's death in 1996, and
was frequently visited by collectors and fellow dealers from all parts
of the world.
At present, the office is located at 31 rue de Tolbiac in Paris in the lively 13th district, a 5 minutes walk from the Bibliothéque Nationale de France (Metro Line 14) and China Town.
Visitors are welcome to visit our shop by appointment from Monday through Friday.
We buy antiquarian books in our areas of specialization: Atlases, old maps, travel books and illustrated books.
If you want to sell books and maps, we are happy to make a free estimation. To do this, please send us some pictures by e-mail. We can also accommodate you by appointment and will be able to make an offer to purchase after physical examination of the object.
