HistoryEdit

Printed books first appeared in the 1470s in places such as Delft, Deventer, Gouda, Nijmegen, Utrecht, Zwolle, and in the 1480s in places such as Haarlem, Leiden, and 's-Hertogenbosch.[6][7]

Among Dutch bestsellers are titles such as the 17th century "Lusthof des Gemoets" by Jan Philipsz Schabaelje.[8][9]

The Stichting Drukwerk in de Marge formed in 1975, and organizes an annual Boekkunstbeurs (book fair).[10] Bibliophiles in 1991 organized the Nederlands Genootschap van Bibliofielen.[11]

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization named Amsterdam the 2008 World Book Capital.

CollectionsEdit

The Leiden University Library began in 1575, and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (royal library) in The Hague in 1798. Since 1919, the Nederlandse Centrale Catalogus lists titles in Dutch libraries.
