Collection selected from more than 2000 consignments by readers of the leading Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad. Chronologically the catalogue extends from the 15th century manuscripts to the scarcest first impressions of modern editions, and in-between lie some of the most sought-after antiquarian books, which are hardly ever offered in this condition. These are, for instance, Blaeu’s famous 'Town-Atlas', the first world atlas by Ortelius (1572), Habitus variarum orbis gentium (1581), one of the rarest costume history books of the 16th century (only three other copies in European collections), profusely illustrated Theatrum Biblicum (1650), and two famous books about horses, 'Pluvinel' by Merian (1628) and Manège Moderne (1743) by Baron Eisenberg.

Explore the online catalogue: Barack Obama Sr, Gerard Reve, Guericke's Experimenta, first editions of Albert Einstein, Lolita, W.F. Hermans, and Anne Frank, autograph letters of Lesseps, Montgolfier, and Napoleon, engravings by Escher, Goltzius, De Lairesse, Jan Luyken, Merian, Rademaker, Romeyn de Hooghe, Van de Passe and Vinkeles, cartography, De Stijl, philosophy, illuminated manuscripts and much more to discover.
