- Without box; covers trifle soiled. Contents fine.

= The English edition of the famous SHV-book, published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Steenkolen Handels Vereeniging. It was designed by Irma Boom and was awarded several prizes, but was never for sale. The production of the book took 5 years of research and design, and the result is overwhelming in its abundance of illustrations, its graphic design and ideas. The book measures 23x18 cm., is 12 cm. thick, weighs 3,5 kg. and has 8 ribbons. Its fore-edge is decorated with tulips when viewed from one side and shows a poem by Gerrit Achterberg when viewed from the other side to mention just one of the many features. "Dit is hét icoon van modern Nederlands grafisch design. Het SHV-boek is vormgegeven door Irma Boom in redactionele samenwerking met kunsthistoricus Johan Pijnappel. Paul Fentener van Vlissingen gaf hun de opdracht voor een bedrijfsboek ter gelegenheid van het honderdjarige bestaan van de Steenkolen Handels Vereeniging. Er werd niet gekozen voor een reclameachtige uitgave met tabellen en directieportretten; inspiratie en uitzonderlijkheid stonden voorop. De voorbereidingen namen vijf volle jaren in beslag; behalve het bedrijfsarchief werden interviews met medewerkers gebruikt. Boom heeft van dit boek een staalkaart van ontwerp- en drukkunst gemaakt, waarbij drukkerij Rosbeek (Nuth) tekende voor de technische prestatie. Gedrukt werd op bankbiljettenpapier, zodat voor dit boek geen bomen hoefden te worden gerooid (de basis is katoen). Het papier is op sommige plaatsen geperforeerd. Laserdruk, veelkleurendruk, geavanceerde computertechnieken en speciale rasters werden ingezet om honderden documenten en fotos te reproduceren op 2136 paginas. Bij het bladeren verandert het tulpenlandschap op de snede in een gedicht van Achterberg. De paginas bleven ongenummerd, het boek moest een reis worden, niet een naslagwerk."
