  • History & Reputation

    Founded in 1986, Bubb Kuyper: Auctioneers of Books, Graphic Art & Manuscripts specializes in rare and valuable books, prints, drawings and manuscripts. Based in Haarlem, Bubb Kuyper holds the distinction of being the largest specialized auction house of its kind in the Netherlands and one of the leading auctioneers of antiquarian books in Western Europe. Bubb Kuyper holds two auctions each year — one in the spring and one in the fall. They also have an active online presence; in 2014 they offered 14 auctions online on for old master prints, drawings and cartography; modern art; old and rare books; fine printing and literature; and more.

    Over the years, Bubb Kuyper has built a reputation for successfully auctioning off many sizeable private libraries and graphic art collections. They distinguish themselves in their industry by not just auctioning off the high-value items in a collection, but also including any items that give the collection its unique identity.

    Services & Staff

    Bubb Kuyper's dedicated team handles all of the auction house's cataloging, auction preparation, and shipping and handling of purchased goods. The auctioneers guarantee authorship, unless the book or paperwork is otherwise indicated as having uncertain authorship. Aside from auctioneering services, Bubb Kuyper also offers valuations of items for insurance and probate purposes.

    The auction house's illustrated catalogs provide an overview of the books, prints, drawings, and manuscripts that pass through Bubb Kuyper, offering details on items of value like first edition books, medieval manuscripts, and autographs that buyers can peruse to make informed decisions on their purchases. Aside from these standard catalogs, Bubb Kuyper also produces separate catalogs for specialized collections, which might include anything from collections of comics to collections of erotica.
