Over forty catalogues from the Dutch subscription agent and book dealer Martinus Nijhoff, produced over a fifty year period. Martinus Nijhoff was founded in The Hague in 1853. It began as a small shop specializing in rare books and broadened in the ensuing years to include supplying and procuring books for academic libraries. Catalogues are printed in either Dutch, English, German or French. With special issues devoted to industrial art and architecture, Netherlandish history, and Dutch East India, among other topics. Two catalogues were specially printed for Mr. W. Nijhoff's sales trip to the U.S. in the 1930s. Martinus Nijhoff closed in 2002, with Brill Publishing acquiring their publishing program in the same year.
