cfr. = confer (Latin) = cf. (English)
Explanation:
Van Dale renders cfr. as an abbreviation of the Latin 'confer', meaning 'vergelijk'. In English this is usually abbreviated as 'cf'.

Nil Desperandum: A Dictionary of Latin Tags and Phrases': confer = compare. "The abbreviation of 'confer', cf., is seen in English most often in scholarly writing. The abbreviation may be used, for example, to invite readers to compare an author's discussion with that presented in another work, but the important factor to bear in mind is that cf. does not mean merely 'see' or 'see also'. The full Latin word 'confer' is never seen in modern texts."
