Founded in 1935, the NVvA celebrates its 80th birthday. Antiquarian booksellers are the guardians of paper heritage. We love history, especially our own! Many look back in nostalgia. We, however, face the future with confidence. This makes two reasons for a grand display. Hundreds of books, maps, prints and photographs are presented in this catalogue, the oldest book dating from 1478, the youngest from 1996. Five centuries of world heritage within reach. Take your pick!
