C. L. C. Voskuil (fl. 1861-1896), Amsterdam.

In 1861 Christiaan Lambertus Cornelis Voskuil (*1832-1909) opens a stationary and artists' supplies shop in the Reguliersbreestraat Y562 in Amsterdam, later moving to larger premises in the Reguliersbreestraat 30-32. In 1876 partners G.A. Endel and A.J. Nuss (*1843-1919) take over the shop but as a stipulation continue under the name of C.L.C. Voskuil until 1896. The bookshop at Reguliersbreestraat 30-32 continues after the death of A.J. Nuss in 1919. Unclear when the shop went out of business, possibly during the 1940s.
