Verlag für Orientkunde

For the freedom of the arts and humanities.

The "Oriental Publishing House" or" Verlag für Orientkunde" was founded in 1949 by Dr. Hans Vorndran just to serve the arts and humanities on behalf of the islamic Orient.

In it's almost 70 years of existence the VfO published 43 volumes of the series "Beiträge zur Kulturgeschichte des Islamischen Orients" (Contributions to the Cultural History of the Islamic Orient).


The picture shows the first book published in the Verlag für Orientkunde more than seventy years ago. We keep the books as long as they are not sold. So you can buy today most of the books of the original edition. We are sorry that few of them are sold out.
