BOOM, I. & J. PIJNAPPEL, (eds.). SHV 1896-1996. Utr., SHV Holdings, (1996). (2136) pp. Prof. illustr., also in colours. Thick 8°. Ocl. w. white/red square on spine, w. fore edge illustration and 8 ribbons. In or. black cardboard box and with or. plastic bag added. (Cloth sl. soiled & cardboard box sl. worn).English edition of the famous SHV-book, published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Steenkolen Handels Vereeniging. The book was never for sale and only distributed as a business gift. "This eleven-centimetre-thick book, which runs to 2,136 unnumbered pages, created a sensation when it was published in 1996. (…) This is on account of the typographical tours de force involved in its manufacture: laser print, perforations, complex raster imaging and other creations seldom manifested in books. Surely this book is the most expensive anniversary volume ever published. On the occasion of the centenary of the Steenkolen Handels-Vereeniging (SHV) [Coal Trading Association] Paul Fentener van Vlissingen (1941-2006) commissioned designer Irma Boom and art historian Johan Pijnappel to make a book that would reflect the motto of this family business – ‘Look for the unusual’. They worked for well over five years on this anniversary volume, which eventually cost about 1.3 million Euros." (Source: https://www.meermanno.nl/irma-boom-shv-18961996).
