's-GRAVENHAGE. Action de Jouissance. Serie 3. black. No 701. The company was founded in 1861 to introduce animals and plants, especially from the Netherlands colonies, and the propagation of useful species of both. The company's land and buildings were called the Zoölogisch Botanisch Tuin (Zoological & Botanical Garden), and was on 6Ha of land on the Westbenoordenhoutsche Polder, then on the edge of the city. In 1944 the zoo land was taken over by the German army, and the zoo had to close. The animals which had not died of hunger during four long years of war,were removed to nearby Wassenaar. After the war the land was acquired by the Heineken Brewery, which later sold part of the land back to the city. This share was issued in exchange for the original share, which had been repaid by the company.
