About Antiquariaat Marc Van de Wiele

In 1976 Marc Van de Wiele rents a small shop in Prinsenhof, in Bruges. In 1977 he marries Anette. They move to the Sint-Salvatorskoorstraat, very close to the Simon Stévin square, a few years later.
In 1992, they buy and renovate a historical building on the corner of the Sint-Salvatorskerkhof and the Heilige Geeststraat.
Since forty years Marc Van de Wiele specialises in illustrated books from the 15th till the 20th century: books of hours, incunabula, natural history, atlases, medical books and books of artists. In 2004 Nathalie Van de Wiele (degree in romance languages) came into the business.
