About Us

D&E Lake Ltd. has been in business since 1977 and has developed into an internationally respected firm, with a large inventory of rare books, antique maps, antique prints, modern books, posters, manuscript documents, jewellery, stamps & coins, and decorative arts. Although we carry old and rare books in all fields, we are particularly interested in early printed books, voyages and travels, Canadiana/Americana, and illustrated books. A large portion of our book inventory is accessible for viewing at www.delake.com

Since the1990s, we have maintained a second location 1199 Yonge St. Our primary inventory at our 1199 Yonge Street location is art, with a primary focus on Canadian artists. Our inventory of Canadian art has quickly developed into one of the finest in the country, and we maintain an extensive inventory spanning the nineteenth century, Canadian Impressionism, the Group of Seven, and post-war Canadian art. We also have large selection of books for sale at our 1199 Yonge St. location.
Our third location in Toronto (1177 Yonge St., Units 8-9) is just around the corner from our 1199 Yonge Street store and offers custom art picture framing services.

Custom picture framing is available at all our locations.

We present all of our material on a scholarly basis, and all items are guaranteed to be authentic and as described. We are members of the Antiquarian Bookseller' Association of Canada, which in turn is affiliated with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers'.

Over the years we have contributed to the building of many important private, institutional, and corporate collections in the fields in which we deal. We act as agents and consultants, bid on behalf of clients at auction, and provide appraisal services.

We proudly work with the film industry for prop and set rentals.
