Frederik Muller (Amsterdam, July 22, 1817 – there, January 4, 1881) was an antiquarian bookseller, bibliographer and bookseller in Amsterdam. He had an auction house in the Nieuwe Doelenstraat. Muller was a son of Samuel Muller Hz., Professor at the Mennonite Seminary in Amsterdam. He married Gerarda Jacoba Yntema. Their son Samuel Muller Fz. became known as a municipal and state archivist in Utrecht. Another son, Jacob Wijbrand Muller, was to become professor of Dutch language and literature at the University of Utrecht and his son, Frederik Muller Jzn, professor of Latin at the University of Amsterdam and Leiden. In the 20th century, a study program in Amsterdam in the field of book trade, publishing, libraries and documentary information science was named after Muller; the Frederik Muller Academy. This was later absorbed into the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. Professor emeritus and book historian P.J. Buijnster considers him the largest antiquarian bookseller in the Netherlands.
