  The exhibitors
 

Sebastiaan R. HesselinkAfter its foundation at Utrecht in 1970 by Sebastiaan Hesselink, now an internationally recognized expert in the world of rare books, manuscripts & prints, Antiquariaat FORUM soon found place as a widely accepted member of the antiquarian book trade.


A move, in 1994, away from Utrecht to the charming, quiet hamlet of 't Goy, some 17 km beyond the city, yet within easy reach Sebastiaan Hesselink and his son Laurens by rail or road, has given our team of expert enthusiasts space to produce our catalogues, and make preparations for the many book fairs in which we participate. We are in the midst of orchards, cattle and at a stone's throw from the Langbroeker Wetering, the heart of an area replete with medieval castles with their forests and their gardens. So we have the peace and quiet to work and attend to our appointed visitors.


In 2000 Sebastiaan Hesselink was joined by his eldest son Laurens who, following four years as a cowboy (jackaroo) in Australia and with three years experience in the new book business, decided to join the family's rare book concern. We are confident that over 35 years experience in combination with youthful energy and enthusiasm provides the basis of a good, strong and long term customer relationship.


We carry general stock in old and rare books, with special emphasis on the subjects of Travel, Natural History, Art and Architecture, Children's Books, Bindings, Coloured Plate Books, Emblem Books, Gastronomy, Medicine, Music, Science, 16th Century, Incunables, and Illuminated Manuscripts. All our books are in fine condition, and usually in original bindings.
