2021 Virtual Exhibition | Basileia Books

Boston Early Music Festival

Basileia Books features rare, out-of-print, and recent books in religion and the humanities. For the 2021 Festival, we continue to spotlight the 500-year anniversary of the Reformation/Counter-Reformation and the 400-year anniversary of the Mayflower at Plymouth. From ancient civilization to the current day, we offer a broad and ever-expanding array of books in music, liturgy & worship, and the visual arts.

A treasure trove of musical scores from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical periods awaits you. You will find a plethora of contemporary editions and some facsimiles. Please inquire about special discounts for the following:

Volumes in 18th-century English fortepiano music (Garland Press)

Volumes in the complete works of Handel and Mozart (Barenreiter)

Volumes in the complete works of Haydn (G. Henle Verlag)

Selections from the Musica Britannica collection (Stainer and Bell)

Selections from the Le Pupitre collection (Heugel)

Our listing at abebooks, linked below, presents most but not all of our current inventory. (We are listed there as Andover Books and Antiquities.) Recent arrivals include a collection of surveys in and monographs on French opera, dance, and theater. Apart from books, we have for sale numerous compact discs, with an emphasis on French sacred and secular music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; simply inquire for a listing.
