Welcome to the NVvA website

The Nederlandsche Vereeniging van Antiquaren (NVvA: Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers) is a professional association of about 60 dealers in old and rare books, prints and maps, established in 1935, so it is nearly 85 years old.

Members are strictly selected based on their professional knowledge and experience and are held to high standards of professional conduct.
