The Library of Hermetic Philosophy: J.R. Ritman Library

The Library of Hermetic Philosophy is not a new institution, but is one which does not get the attention it deserves. It's worth a visit if you are in Amsterdam

The Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica (BPH) was founded by Amsterdam businessman Joost R. Ritman (1941), who decided to make his collections part of the public domain in 1984. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, this private library is not associated with any public institution or library. The BPH with its collections of books and manuscripts and exhibition room is located on Bloemstraat 13-19, Amsterdam, and is accessible to the public at a moderate fee.
