In 1996 he acquired the Antiquariat Burgverlag in the centre of Vienna, founded in 1920, and has been running it ever since with the help of his employees. In this classic antiquarian bookshop, which appeared in the recently published monograph Die schönsten Buchhandlungen Europas (Europe’s most beautiful bookshops), rare books, incunabula, old prints, autographs and manuscripts are offered for sale to an international clientele.
