This historically important museum, at Tervuren in Belgium, was founded in 1897.
Its vast collections were largely assembled during the periods of the Congo Free
State (1885 to 1908) and the Belgian Congo (1908 to 1960). It now acts as a world
centre for research and knowledge dissemination on the past and present societies
and the natural environments of Africa, in particular of Central Africa, to foster -
among the general public and the scientific community - a better understanding of
and interest in this field and, through partnerships, to make a substantial
contribution towards the sustainable development of Africa.
The Museum has throughout its history published scientific findings. Many of these
are still available and NHBS is proud to collaborate in bringing them to the attention
of a wider audience. We have been appointed a world distributor for these remarkable
documents and are therefore able to offer prompt order fulfilment.
The publications are listed under the following four headings:
