Authenticity guaranteed

Whether you are looking for an old map, an antique world map or a special print: we guarantee the authenticity of all items we offer. All items are original engravings, etchings, lithographs and books, made in or about the specified year. We do not offer reproductions. Our membership of the Nederlandsche Vereeniging van Antiquaren and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers constitutes the aforementioned guarantee. In addition, we guarantee this guarantee by providing X-rays of valuable objects on request. These X-rays are used to visualize the paper structure and any watermark(s) present. With the help of this, the dating of some items can also be determined more accurately.
