Collection highlights

We call them collection highlights, Atria's treasures which are hidden in the depot. Not only can you find the oldest book (from 1578!), or a certificate (from 1855!), but also action pamphlets from "Paarse September" and objects from the "second feminist wave".

The Atria collection from 1935 does not only contain books and magazines, but also photographs, poetry albums, posters, travel letters, objects such as a travel document from Aletta Jacobs, paintings, the book of the Society for Women's Suffrage from 1919, pamphlets and a liber amicarum by Carrie Chapman Catt. We will highlight the most beautiful ones here.
