The beginnings of Venator &amp; Hanstein go back to the 1930s when the idea was created to re-animate the long tradition of book and print auctions in the historically significant publishing city of Cologne. From 1946 to 1950 auctions were held under the company name "Ringbuchhandlung August Nethe Co." on the Hohenzollernring in downtown Cologne, in 1951 the name was changed to "Nethe and Venator". Rolf Venator has been part of this success story from the very beginning and has lead the company under the name "Venator KG" since 1953. The antiquarian book auction house had its first seat in the Breite Strasse and from there moved to St. Apern Strasse. In 1984 Prof. Henrik R. Hanstein joined the company as a partner and the offices were moved to the Kunsthaus Lempertz building. Since 1988 the company has been managed by the partner Karl-Heinz Knupfer.</p> </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2752-venator__hanstein_-_70_years_of_books_and_print_auctions_-_spring_sales.html 2017/03/23 A.L.A.I.

However, I can't live without Vienna, or without books."</em> Juri Andruchowytsch</p> <p>From 8th - 12th November 2017 the Austrian capital Vienna will once again welcome book lovers and bibliophiles. With over 300 lectures, discussions, performances &ndash; and an International Book Fair &ndash; &ldquo;Buch Wien&rdquo; will be the greatest Austrian book festival and one of the most important bookish events in Europe. Following on last year's success, antiquarian booksellers will be a prominent part of it. <br /><br />Every year, antiquarian booksellers take part in BUCH WIEN with a collective stand, showing rare and fine books from all centuries. All booksellers are members of the Austrian Antiquarian Booksellers&rsquo; Association (VAO) and affiliates to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB). Guided tours will show book fair visitors the most beautiful books and manuscripts on display, while bookbinders and book artists demonstrate bookbinding and restauration techniques. At the collective stand of the antiquarian booksellers, visitors can bring their "treasures" and ask for an appraisal to understand and learn about the value of the books. &nbsp;<br />Michael Steinbach, President of the Austrian Booksellers Association: "The experience of holding an old, rare book in your hands cannot be replaced by anything."<br /><br />If you wish to receive more information about the fair or would like to exhibit, please contact Michael Steinbach by <a href="mailto:michael.steinbach@antiquariat-steinbach.com" target="_blank">Email</a>.&nbsp;<br /><br /><a href="https://www.ilab.org/catalog_view/3000/3000_BW16_online.pdf" target="_blank"><br /></a></p> <h4 class="texte_rouge">Antiquarian booksellers at Buch Wien 2016:</h4> <p><br />Burgverlag, Robert Schoisengeier&nbsp;<br />Domenico Jacono&nbsp;&ndash; Antiquariat/Verlag/Galerie&nbsp;<br />Druckwerk&nbsp;&ndash; Antiquariat Walter S.

Pieter Johannes Burgersdijk (1867-1915) and George David Niermans (1854-1920), former Brill employees, offered to take over these branches. They established their business on Nieuwsteeg 1 and appropriately restored the traditional name of the property, &lsquo;Templum Salomonis&rsquo;.<br /><br /><strong>On view: 10-13 Nov&nbsp;</strong></p> </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2734-burgersdijk__niermans_-_books_manuscripts_prints.html 2017/11/14 Bubb Kuyper - Books and Prints <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2732/100/100/image.jpg" alt="Bubb Kuyper - Books and Prints" align="left" /> <p>The largest specialized auctioneer of books and works on paper of the Netherlands, and one of the foremost companies in these fields in Western Europe.<br />Large auctions of books, manuscripts, prints and drawings twice a year (May and November)&nbsp;<br /><br />Preview: 16 - 19 November</p> </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2732-bubb_kuyper_-_books_and_prints.html 2017/11/21
