Amsterdam Canal Houses, with photos by Arjan Bronkhorst, tells the story of four centuries of life on Amsterdam's canals. In the 17th century these magnificent edifices were erected by the wealthiest merchants and particians. In later centuries, they were home to their descendants or newcomers to the canals who renovated them. In this book the doors to these urban palaces are opened. Over thirty houses are displayed in all their splendour; interiors of unparalleled opulence that few have ever seen. Meet the people who live here, who have succeeded in restoring and conserving historic interiors that are among the finest in the Netherlands.
