The Special Collections has a collection of historic fruit literature, books on fruit growing and crops and nursery catalogues with fruit varieties from the end of the 15th century till the end of the 20th century. Some of these books, partly from our collection, are made available on cd-rom by C.M. Ballintijn from the Noordelijke Pomologische Vereniging.
