The Elzeviers: 1617-2017

On 4 February 1617, Louis Elzevier died. He had founded a family firm which was to be prominent in printing, publishing and bookselling in the Netherlands throughout the seventeenth century; whose books were to spread throughout Europe; and whose output would become highly collectable. Senate House Library celebrates the anniversary, and its Elzevier Collection—Britain's only dedicated Elzevier Collection—here.
