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