The exhibitors
Antiquariaat A. Kok & Zn.

Bookdealers since 1945


The first floor at  A. Kok & Zn. BV.,  Oude Hoogstraat 14-18

Ton KokThe shop started in 1945 in de Oude Hoogstraat nr. 3, mainly selling ordinary children’s books, novels and popular scientific books to the famous Dutch "Leesbibliotheken" (privately owned libraries with popular books). In 1951 we moved to number 4 and a few years later to a second shop at nr. 10 where the antiquarian department first started. In the early sixties my brother Rob and I joined the business of our father, and from then on we started growing. 

The third floor, open by appointment only. 30 Years ago we moved to the building in which we are now (Oude Hoogstraat 14-18), a former department store,  1500 square-meters (5 floors) full of antiquarian and modern books &  prints.


Marga Kok In these past 30 years we took over the stores of Pfann and Simon Emmering, and bought many famous  libraries, among them the renowned library of Prof. Wassink.

My brother left the business 4 years ago, but my wife Marga, our daughter Sascha, and our son Sander joined the business already for many years ago now.

Sascha KokSascha is running the internet section, Sander is responsible for the old prints, and Marga is selling in the shop. With the help of 6 employees we are running the store, and our separately located large warehouse. 

Buying we do together, all over the world. Especially in the field of classical archeology we bought many fine libraries. 


We specialize in Classical Archeology, Art (before 1800),
Sander Kok Architecture, Biology, Olympics, Topographical maps & prints, and we have a (very) large stock on most other fields as well. 

We also intend to open an old print shop in the same street,  at the Oude Hoogstraat nr. 10, in the nearby future.


New books are bought daily.For myself, Ton Kok, dealing in books became a hobby and finding books still gives me so much pleasure, that if my health permits it, I will go on for many more years to come.
