Map of Antiquariaat Forum BV

Antiquariaat FORUM was founded in Utrecht in 1970 by Sebastiaan Hesselink, now an internationally recognized expert in the world of rare and antiquarian books, manuscripts & prints. Since 1994 we are located in 't Goy, a small village south of Utrecht. In 2000, Sebastiaan Hesselink was joined by his eldest son Laurens, who took over the family business eight years later.

We carry general stock in antiquarian and rare books, with special emphasis on the subjects of Travel & Exploration, Natural History, Middle East & Islamic World, Art & Architecture, Medicine & Pharmacy, Science & Technology, Coloured Plate Books, Emblem Books, Incunables, & Illuminated Manuscripts. All our books are in fine condition, and usually in original bindings, unless specifically stated otherwise.
