Run by father and son, Bouwman Oriental Books is an antiquarian bookshop that started in the year 2000, after collecting oriental manuscripts had been a hobby for both Herman en Gerrit-Jan. Both have a passion for History, Art and Oriental Cultures.
Manuscripts from the east are our main products. We sell antiquarian books from Marocco to Indonesia in over 20 languages. We value these handwritten books from a bibliographical, historical and artistic perspective. Our aim is to give our stock the best description after exhaustive research. Besides a neat description, we appreciate a contextual view. So if you’re interested in the bigger picture, have a look at our articles. You can read more about book making, find links and interviews.
Today we also deal, besides manuscripts, in some printed books, drawings and book related items. Among these are a collection Hebrew printed books from Aleppo (Syria), Mogul paintings and writing materials from Central Asia.
