What is on our site
This is a short history on HHS (English text).
‘one-one-two’ (Eén-Eén-Twee) is the fire magazine we have been making for the Dutch association of anyone who is interested in the fire service as professional, volunteer or hobby. Since January 1st the publishing of the magazine has been taken over by the VBB. See: www.brandweer.org . You can take a look at the 48 page full-colour magazine by downloading the pdf-file. On the website of the association you will find a lot of information and pictures of the Dutch fire service: www.brandweer.org
Here you find used books. We start with books in English language. You find books in other languages by clicking on ANTIQUARIAAT. If you are interested in one of these books but first would like to know more about it, you may take an option on the book after which we will inform you more extensively. After this you can decide to buy or not.
Here you find left overs, single copies etc. at reduced prices.
HHS Publishers (former Holland Hobby Sales) is active in The Netherlands for over 40 years serving fire, police and ambulance enthusiasts. ‘In the old days’ we also had a worldwide mailorder service for scale models. Nowadays we concentrate on the making of magazines and books as well import books from several countries.
