I started my career in the modern book trade, where I worked for more than 18 years.
During that time, I went to stay in England for four years, from 1973 until 1977.
While there, I started to collect English illustrated and children’s books.
I also started to trade in old and secondhand books, at a weekend market on Hampstead Heath.
When I returned to Holland (after a cycle tour through Europe), I started to work in a modern bookshop, where I took
care of the antiquarian section.
We attend a few main Book Fairs in: London, Deventer, York and Amsterdam. For the last five years I issue an interesting and full catalogue about once a year.
We deal in: Children’s and Picture Books
With several small collections a.o: ABC books, a large section of 19th century children’s books,
boys and girls fiction and children’s magazines, modern picture books as well as old and classic ones.
