I.V.V. (which stands for the Dutch abbreviation for International Mailing House on Bird Books) is housed since May 1996 in the l8th-century Manor "The Oldhorst". Though specifically oriented on the Dutch market we nevertheless welcome interested people from other countries to visit our website. Hence these short words in English.

We have over 2500 titles on bird books in stock. When ordering these books by fax, letter or E-mail you will receive an invoice. Upon payment of this invoice the book(s) will be forwarder to you.

When you are in The Netherlands you of course always may visit The Oldhorst where all titles are on display. Although we are most of the time present it is advisable to give a phonecall immediately before rendering a visit.
