Haarlem and surroundings - THE COLLECTION A.M. VAN DEN BROEK

Haarlem and surroundings - THE COLLECTION A.M. VAN DEN BROEK (part 2)

 

Mr A.M. (Ton) van den Broek (1932-1995) was a born and bred ‘Haarlemmer’, who together with his brother ran the menswear shop Van Den Broek in Haarlem. In the 1960s he developed an interest in prints and books relating to Haarlem and surroundings. Through his frequent visits to antiquarian bookshops and auction houses and by advertising in local papers he managed to amass a large and varied collection of ‘Haarlemiana’, which he studied in depth and catalogued in detail. When his collection of prints and books on Haarlem neared completion, he started buying drawings and watercolours, many of which are of Haarlem interest, and created a fine collection. A first selection of his collection of books and prints of Haarlem and surroundings and his collection of drawings and watercolours is included in this auction, all lots indicated with his provenance and mostly with his collector's mark.
