Dedicated to the weird and wonderful, Black Dog Rare Books was established in December 2018. Based in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, I offer quirky, unusual, interesting and rare books and ephemera from four centuries. 


I have a BA (Hons.) in German and an MA (Hons.) in Book and Manuscript Studies (University of Amsterdam). Having worked as a bibliographer at the National Library of the Netherlands and as a cataloguer and dealer at Antiquariaat Forum, I have broad experience in the world of rare books.


I am a member of the Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA). My clients include libraries, museums, private collectors and fellow members of the trade.


If you have any queries, wants or comments, please get in touch.
