De collection Old and Antique books, Manuscripts and otherwise Rare Books
this auction is also diverse. What is a Book Auction
without an excellent selection of antique and rare books? More than a hundred works this time, of remarkable good quality. Including special topographical work on The Zaanstreek, Stavoren, Vronen en Waterland, Harlem, Dordrecht, Bommel, South Holland and Schieland, The Hague, Breda, East Friesland, Medemblik, Tübingen, Paris, Leipzig, Zeeland, London, Amsterdam and Europe. Furthermore the collection consists of many other literary, theatrical, religious, historical, biological or medical titles.
Highlights are a beautiful 16th-century copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses
and the beautiful ‘Pomologia, dat is beschryvingen en afbeeldingen van de beste zoorten van Appels en Peeren’
with 39 vivid hand-colored engravings of superb quality ánd ‘Beschouwende en Werkdadige Hovenier-Konst of inleiding tot de waare oeffening der planten’
with 16 large folding plates. Both made by Johann Hermann Knoop.
A book that absolutely arouses curiosity is ‘HISTORIE DER SEVARAMBES, Volkeren die een Gedeelte van het darde Vast-land bewoonen, gemeenlyk ZUID-LAND genaamd’.
This work is based on original 17th century ship logs of Captain Siden. Researchers practically agree that the passage of the disembarkation of the Heerenveen cabin boy Sjouke Gabbes on the Australian coast, was an inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. (From: Lucius L. Hubbard, A dutch source for Robinson Crusoe).
Art and Graphics.
Art is also well represented this auction. Names such as Peter Klashorst, Bram Bogart and Salvador Dali
adorn the list. Beside that you will also find a series of beautiful rare engravings of the award-winning early 20th-century artist Marius Bauer
and works by other well-known Dutch artists. Last but not least a beautiful original drawing of the famous Art Nouveau artist Antoon Molkenboer
from the private collection of his family.
The auction concludes with a collection special rare domestic and foreign Posters from early and mid-20th Century.
In short: Another auction to be proud of!
