Our bookstore specializes in books related to Classical Antiquity and Philosophy. In both fields of study we keep a large stock of standard works, among which e.g. the complete Loeb Classical Library. Moreover we keep up to date with the latest and most relevant titles from leading scholars and publishers. The titles required by the Classics Department of the University of Leiden are also available in our store. If you are interested in a title that is not in stock, we can order it for you. Because of our trade accounts with most Dutch and foreign publishers we can obtain almost any title you wish.
Our antiquarian collection largely focuses on Classical Antiquity and Philosophy, too. The complete antiquarian stock can be browsed on our website. Apart from this specialized collection we also offer a considerable amount of antiquarian books on several other subjects, such as Dutch and English literature, the city of Leiden, the book trade, art and travelling. You can also leave us with a book search request for new or out-of-print-books, which we will then try to obtain for you at the best possible price.
Books on Classical Studies
Several times a year we publish the catalogue ‘Books on Classical Studies’, in which we bring together our latest acquisitions of antiquarian books and the titles recently published on this subject. A paper version is available for our customers on request, but it is also provided on our website and announced through e-mail.
We offer advice, process your orders for new and antiquarian books and provide for shipment in the Netherlands and abroad. We provide students of the Leiden University Classics Department with up to date required reading lists, from which they can order and buy on credit. We also purchase books related to Classical Antiquity and Philosophy, if they are in good condition and relevant to our stock.
