The libraries of Prof. J.A.K.E. de Waele and F.L. Bastet about to be auctioned by a Dutch bookseller on May 19th and 20th. I wonder why they haven't gone to a library ... Here are the auction details:
- The catalogue contains the important library of Prof. dr. J.A.K.E. de Waele (1938-2001). This library can best be described as a gateway to life in Classical Antiquity; the vast majority of the books dealing with archaeology (i.a. Pompeii).
- The library of Prof. dr. F.L. Bastet (1926-2008), consisting of books on Classical Antiquity, Literature and the Arts.
- Arabic manuscripts from the collection of Prof. dr. P.S. van Koningsveld.
- Part VI of the Stock and Reference Works of Smitskamp Oriental Antiquarium (formerly of E.J. Brill).
- A fine collection of books on (applied) art, books on books, bibliophile editions comprising of a nearly complete collection of publications by Stichting De Roos (incl. Escher 'Regelmatige vlakverdeling'), a large collection of signed bibliophile bindings presented to members of the Dutch nobility, as well as other libraries and collections.
