JOOST VAN DEN VONDEL REVISITED

Our first offer of privately-owned books contained an offer of selected works by- and about Joost van den Vondel (Cologne, 1587 - Amsterdam, 1679). We are happy to report that it met with considerable interest. Rewarding as this might be, we had to disappoint some potential customers; in the case of valuable old books there is usually only one copy available. The present special offer compensates this by listing twenty theatre plays by Vondel, all published during his lifetime. In all cases the Amsterdam printer was Kornelis de Bruyn who produced these editions between 1660 and 1662. They are exact replica’s of the original editions of Vondel ‘s main publishers, the various members of the De Wees family, even to the extent of using the latter ‘s device, a well with the text ‘Elck zyn beurt’. These handsome editions in small octavo size are uniformly bound in tasteful modern half vellum bindings with matching boards covers (vellum backed boards).
