From 27th to 29th April in Paris, the Grand Palais is hosting for the 6th consecutive year the international exhibition of old books, prints and drawings. This major cultural event, which is celebrating its 24th anniversary this year, will have as its guest of honour the library of the Barreau de Paris – an opportunity for visitors to discover treasures which are usually inaccessible to the general public.

They include legal and non-legal books, as well as manuscripts, drawings and prints belonging to the library’s large collection, which can be found at the very heart of the Palace of Justice and can usually only be consulted by lawyers and legal experts.
