About 4500 of our books are online on Antiqbook, Abebooks, Booklooker and the Dutch website Boekwinkeltjes. However, on this (our own) website you may find several thousand titles just as well. Just enter your search term(s) in the search box ‘Zoeken in oude catalogi en nieuwsbrieven’. You will find us with Google too, if you are looking for an author or a title. If you google a name you are interested in together with ‘Fokas’ you might arrive at one of our offers. Some of these books have already been sold.
Our descriptions are in Dutch and/or English. Many of our books and other rare items are not online. If you are looking for anything or want the translation of a description, don’t hesitate to ask.
