Editions de l’Oiseau-Lyre

Polyphonic Music of the 14th Century

Oiseau-Lyre's fine Limited Editions have long had a unique reputation as important collector's items. They are renowned for their special Oiseau-Lyre paper, unusually beautiful typography, splendid Grandjean and Buchardt engraving, and highly original bindings. They were mostly produced before the Second World War and most are still in excellent condition; only a small number of copies remain.
