The current bookstore has its origins in the one that existed in the 80s in Redu, a small village in the Ardennes. It is there, in a charming manor house, Dirk Minet had his bookbinding workshop and his bookstore.
In the early 90s, he moved to Brussels and with the collaboration of his brother Bernard created a place even more conducive to the passion for old books that motivated them both. After seven years, Bernard leaves and Dirk alone presides over the destiny of the Minet-frères bookshop.
In April 1996 opening of the first website of the bookstore with the URL address http://www.librairie-minet-frères.
In June 1997, the site was completely renovated and changed address.
Today the books have found their setting in a splendid 19th century mansion.
