Anthony van Hoboken (/ˈhoʊboʊkən/; Dutch: [ˈɦoːboːkə(n)]; 23 March 1887 – 1 November 1983) was a collector and musicologist. He was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and died in Zurich, Switzerland. Hoboken trained as an engineer in Delft, before studying music in Frankfurt and Vienna with Heinrich Schenker. He began collecting early editions of music from Bach to Brahms; eventually this collection amounted to over 5,000 items and is now in the Austrian National Library in Vienna. He moved from Austria to Switzerland in 1938.
