Books for Sale from the Meijer Library person sitting on a pile of books

Due to the passing of our beloved father and husband, Paul H. E. Meijer on July 9, 2017, the family is selling his books and those of his widow. There are five categories of books: (1) English language, (2) French language, (3) Dutch language, (4) rare books, and (5) all the books in numerical order [a work in progress],. Eventually these categories will be subdivided. While Paul Meijer had broad interests — he liked Spinoza, for example — most of his books were in the Dutch language. In his heart he always remained a Dutchman. Please email book@petruscamper.com if you are interested in buying any of these books. Thank you!
