contents: For the 17th and 18th centuries only two major company archives of printers and booksellers from the Northern Netherlands have come down to us: the archives of the Leiden publishing and bookselling firm Luchtmans founded in 1683 and that of the Haarlemtype foundry, printing house and publisher Joh. Enschedé and Sons, founded in Haarlem in 1703. This is a page from the accounts of the Leiden bookseller Samuel Luchtmans with the annual account of his Amsterdam colleagues P. and G. Wetstein from 1709. In the Republic, paying onaccount was a normal procedure. Usually booksellers settled the editions they had exchanged among each other once a year.
