A wonderful collection of bookseller labels from the Netherlands, primarily from the early- to mid-1900s, with a few marks from the late 19th Century, and a few modern examples. Arranged alphabetically by city (Aalsmeer, Aalten, Almelo, Amersfoort, Amstelveen, Amsterdam … Zeist, Zutphen, Zwolle), then by shop or surname (Felix P. Abrahamson, Abrahamson & Van Straaten, J.M. Alles, Boekhandel Ambon, Apollo Boekhandel, De Arbeiderspers, Barends’ Boekhandel…). After the last label (J.M.W. Waanders of Zwolle), there are about fifty oversized marks. Totaling 550 labels, there are no duplicates—though some labels only differ because of minor differences in color or font. The vast majority are in very good used condition, with some fine, unused labels and fewer than two dozen that show heavy wear, chips or small tears. The collection is loosely housed in a postage stamp stock book, 23.5 by 13.7 cm, with nineteen single-sided pages and an additional two-sided page from a different album that has been made to fit (see images).
