Bullet The collection Antique Books and Manuscripts in this auction is in our humble opinion extremely interesting. Approximately 100 antique books will be auctioned off wherein almost every subject will be represented. The masterpiece of this auction however is undeniably the post-incunable ’De Libero Arbitrio diatribe siue Collatio / De Servo Arbitrio Mar. Lutheri ad D. Erasmum Roterodamum’. This very rare first edition postincunabel stood at the cradle of the schism within the Western beliefsystem. This book is a compilation of Erasmus his theorem regarding the free will of man in relation to God and Luthers slave-like will, the antithesis in which he assumes that everything already has been determined by God. In this polemic the disagreement turns out into an ideological battle with metaphysical depth. This book is therefore considered to be the physical representation of the controversy between Erasmus and Luther which, despite the fact that they were pursuing the same objectives, would emphasize the differences between them.

Bullet Curios and Antiques. This sale a comprehensive collection of curios and antiques will be auctioned: Ceramics, Militaria, Optics, Silver, Clocks, Board Games, Copper, Glass, Tin, Toys, a special collection (heavy) Medals and Tokens, an extensive collection of Surinamese and African Ethnography and a variety of other curiosities.

Bullet Art, Photography and Posters. A variety of silkscreen prints including work of Karel Appel and Herman Brood. Lithographs and rare cultural and literary posters and some original works. In addition to the usual prints, engravings, etchings and other graphics that normally adorn this category.
