Rare Art Books for Sale

Mariposa Art Books was seeded by an art reference library that had to be sold.   Mrs. C grew up with this library comprised of a wide range of rare art books and catalogs depicting European art.  English, German, French and Italian books focus on out-of-print books, dealer and art auction house catalogs, museum exhibition catalogs, and collectibles.
