About us

After six years working for two different rare bookdealers my wife Wilma and I started trading from home in Nieuwegein in January 1981.
By the end of 1981 we moved to the centre of Utrecht. There we opened a shop with an office. During the years the work from the office increased enormously. So we moved after twelve years to another monumental premises on the canal downtown with only an office.


Since 2003 we are based in Vianen, a small city close to Utrecht where visitors are welcome by appointment. As from the beginning we still specialize in old and rare books on voyages and travel and colonial and maritime history. We offer digital catalogues relating to our specialities several times a year. If you also would like to receive these lists online, please let us know your e-mail address and we will be happy to include you in our e-mail file.

Alternatively you are welcome to visit our website to browse our frequently updated inventory. We exhibit at major international book fairs where we hope to meet you.


We are members of the Nederlandsche Vereeniging van Antiquaren (NVvA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).
