Black Dog Rare Books was established in 2018 by Steven de Joode. Based in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, we offer quirky, unusual, interesting and rare books and ephemera from four centuries.
Steven runs the company together with his wife Chantal Germaine Haak, who has a background in psychology. Seemingly effortlessly she combines business acumen with an inquiring mind and a keen eye for all things unusual.
Steven has a BA (Hons.) in German and an MA (Hons.) in Book and Manuscript Studies (University of Amsterdam). Having worked as a bibliographer at the National Library of the Netherlands and as a cataloger and dealer at Antiquariaat Forum, Steven has broad experience in the world of rare books. He is a member of the Independent Online Booksellers Associations (IOBA).
Our clients include libraries, museums, private collectors and fellow members of the trade. If you have any queries, wants or comments, please do get in touch.
