40 Milestones, in honour of Max Girsel’s 40th anniversaryPublished on 31 Oct. 2014
On the occasion of Max Girsel’s 40th anniversary in the booktrade we have chosen 40 milestones for display at the Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair, November 6-8 2014, in the Round Tower in Copenhagen.
Although Herman H.J. Lynge & Søn was established in 1821, the year 2014 constitutes a mile stone in the history of our firm. It is now 40 years since Käthe and Max Girsel took over the bookshop, continuing the long and strong tradition as scientific booksellers.
