Arader Books, Jonah Rosenberg Selections began as a curated collection of the books at Arader Galleries, housed in a beaux-arts mansion on the Upper East Side. Arader Galleries stands in the vanguard of American dealers of printed illustration from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, with special emphasis on Audubon prints and important maps. Jonah Rosenberg (A.B., Brown; D.Phil, Oxon.) has taught art history for ever a decade, and been an antiquarian bookseller since 2015. He brings his years of experience as a professor to the field of rare books, seeking to empower his clients with knowledge and to develop their interests through collecting. Please feel very welcome to contact him with specific queries, or for broader collection-development. Dr. Rosenberg is an associate member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America.
From the earliest, printed books have occupied themselves with the natural world. Woodcuts in the XVc and XVIc gave way to copperplate engravings and etchings, and these in turn were colored by hand. At their finest, natural history illustrations can teach us more about species than can individual specimens.

It is no accident that the printed book in Europe and the Age of Exploration began at the same time. Building on Ptolemy, explorers and publishers sought perpetually to increase the scope and precision of maps of the world. Engraving, with its clear thin lines, proved to be the perfect medium for the dispersion of maps. Atlases, sometimes exquisitely colored, came to be the ultimate status-symbol for enlightened rulers and wealthy merchants. Maps, whether issued in atlases or separately, came to decorate walls, opening homes up to the world.
