Founded in 1821 by Christian Tønder Sæbye, Herman H.J. Lynge & Søn is the oldest antiquarian bookshop in Scandinavia. Herman Henrik Julius Lynge was a coworker in the "Sæbyeske Boghandling"; when Sæbye died in 1844, Lynge became the manager, and in 1853 he could finally afford to buy the bookshop; he then changed the name to "H.H.J. Lynge (Sæbyeske Boghandling)". A couple of years later he changed the name to "Herman H.J. Lynges Boghandel", and when his son became his official partner in 1892, the bookshop received the name it still bears today, "Herman H.J. Lynge & Søn". As the first and greatest international antiquarian bookshop in Scandinavia, Herman H.J.Lynge (&Søn) has always played a great role in the antiquarian booktrade. The old bookshop has always been situated at the heart of Copenhagen, as it still is today. (For more details see the Wikipedia entry for Herman H.J. Lynge).
