Antiquarian Bookshop Elysian Fields derives its name from the location: in the village of Beek, close to Nijmegen at the eastern border of The Netherlands.
In this region some open meadows on the forested hills are termed the Elysian Fields. In Greek mythology the Elysian Fields were the final resting place of the heroic and the virtuous.  Here a view over the Elysian Fields towards the north, i.e. towards the Ooijpolder.
