On the Internet site of "The Royal Library" ( you can find the following information about the family Gosse: "The family Gosse was one of the most important bookshop families in The Hague in the eighteenth century. Both Pierre Gosse senior, who came as a refugee to the republic, as well as his son Pierre Gosse junior managed to acquire important positions. The latter even succeeded in becoming a book salesman in the court of Willem V."

Pierre Gosse Jr (1718-1794) was, since 1749, holder of the title " Bookseller of the Oranjes". In 1763, this did in fact become an official post.
