Abstract: The existing research on books and book trade focuses mainly on archived materials such as library inventories of prominent persons or shipment lists in the Archivo General de Indias (AGI). Based on the shortened book titles in these repositories the conclusion was made that a considerable amount of books came from the Spanish Netherlands. The idea of this paper is to compare the results of the archive studies with the catalogues of ancient libraries and institutions holding the remains of pre-1600 Peruvian book collections. Combining the two approaches, the archive research on one hand and the systematic catalogue review on the other should shed light on the questions: Where did the Peruvian reader get his books from? And was there a trend to import specific ideas ‘bound in books’ from specific European locations? In this context Antwerp’s role as a center of print production for the Spanish market will be reviewed for different thematic categories, and, based on statistical material, its role will be compared with the impact of other cities that were players in the transatlantic book market.
