Popko Noordhoff (1833-1903) started with a bookshop in Groningen in 1858. As a publisher, he specialized in scientific publications and textbooks. Thus, in 1883, the famous School flora of the Netherlands by H. Heukels appeared. From 1906 Noordhoff achieved great success with Kun you can sing, sing along! In the twentieth century, the Noordhoff company built up an extensive mathematical fund. At some point more than half of all Dutch schools used a Noordhoff edition. Scientific mathematical publications received international recognition.
