'scri·ni·um n. [scribo]. a case, chest, or box for keeping books, papers, letters, etc.; a book-box, letter-case, escritoir.
Scrinium stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (contemporary Greece), and many more subjects.
A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity.
New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad. Please note that the delivery time mentioned is not guaranteed.Scrinium is member of the Dutch Koninklijke Boekverkopersbond (KBB), the Organisation of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA), and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB / LILA).
Scrinium will also help you find the books you are searching for. Please feel free to email us your requests!
Open only on appointment.
