FOUNDED AT THE END OF 19TH CENTURY

B.M. Israel Boekhandel en antiquariaat BV was founded towards the end of the 19th century in Arnhem. After World War II the business moved to Amsterdam where various addresses were occupied (Herengracht, Max Israel (January 21st, 1916 - October 12th, 2001)Leidsestraat, Johannes Verhulststraat, Singel 379) before settling down for a period of nearly 33 years at 264 Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal in 1971, close to Dam square.

This large 17th century house originally stood overlooking the canal which was navigated by tradesmen who mainly dealt in wood and timber (up to 1600), later on a flower market emerged. About 1740 the house was extensively renovated and redecorated on request of the owners, the family van Hemert-Schricks. The sculptors Van Logteren (father and son) designed and crafted the doors and panel work which can still be admired today. The canal stopped being a canal in 1884. The house was bought by the Hendrick de Keyser Foundation in 1929 and restored in 1930.
