Our Approach

We do not list material with any third-party resellers. Our books are only available directly from us.

Our newest books, updated on a regular basis, are available on our online fresh sheet, which is intended for serendipity and scouting.

Items are also offered through thematic illustrated catalogues. New catalogues are issued regularly. If you are on our mailing list, we will email you once a new catalogue is issued. We strive to update the catalogues to reflect what items are sold, reserved, or available. Here you can find our upcoming catalogue schedule.

Only a small portion of our stock is listed on our website. We welcome visitors by appointment to our office in Mill Valley, where you will find hundreds of uncatalogued high-quality scholarly books that are not available anywhere else.

We pride ourselves on personal service and value a direct relationship with every customer. Please reach out and we will answer any question you may have. We would love to stay in touch, please sign up for our mailing list here.

auf Deutsch

Die Geschichte der Menschheit konnte nur geschrieben werden, weil es Papier gibt. Bücher, Fotoalben, Tagebücher oder auch andere Gegenstände aus Papier, bilden das Herzstück der Geschichte. Wir schätzen den Wert dieser Gegenstände. Für viele Artefakte, gerade bei solchen die kulturell oder historisch bedeutend sind, ist eine digitale Version einfach kein Ersatz. Wir erwerben unsere Materialien weltweit, vom Profanen bis hin zum Erlesenen, wobei wir uns besonders auf Papier aus Kontinentaleuropa spezialisieren.

Hier im Antiquariat Mark Funke kaufen und verkaufen wir seltene und wertvolle Bücher, Archive, Manuskripte, Fotografien, Sammlerobjekte und andere ausgesuchte Papiergegenstände. Zu unserer Kundschaft gehören unter anderem Private Sammler, Bibliotheken und Forschungsinstitute aus aller Welt. Wir wünschen Ihnen viel Freude und freuen uns auf Ihre Bestellung.
