House of Living Books. The Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica Collection
Atalanta fugiens and a curious case of 17th-century applied art
The Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica and the House with the Heads are inseparably linked with Amsterdam and its history of tolerance, freedom of expression and freedom of the press.
The library has a unique and still growing collection of 25,000 titles on Western spirituality and philosophy.
Dan Brown has donated € 300,000 to digitize the core collection of some 4,600 ancient books.
The collection can be described as a reflection of man’s search for the meaning of his existence, a ‘treasure chamber of the human mind’.
