Amsterdam office


Paulus Swaen Europe b.v.

In order to better serve our European buyers and sellers, we have opened an office in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam, with publishers like Willem and Joan Blaeu, Jodocus and Henricus Hondius, Johannes Janssonius, Frederick de Wit, Nicolas Visscher, Jacob Colom, Lootsman, and a dozen others ruled the European 17th-century map and atlas production.
It is here at the Pieter Lastmankade 2, within two kilometers of the Museumplein Park, home to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, and the place where the printshops of Blaeu and Hondius were located that the office of Paulus Swaen Europe b.v., is located.
