PAPER GAME. - Nieuw Stoombootspel.
Rotterdam, T.J. Wijnhoven Hendriksen [c1835]. Woodcut broadside (41x33cm). A horizontal fold, an outstanding copy. ¶ Racing games like this often celebrate the new, the noteworthy, the latest craze. The steamboat might have been around for a few years but it hadn't lost its gloss judging by the games that re-appeared through the 1830s. This game, signed P. Emans, seems to have been printed at least four or five times through the twenties and thirties judging by the various colophons. All but one I've found are Hendriksen's; the exception is a Delft printing dated 1832 which, if this printing is from around 1835 as the experts say, indicates that the block was lent or rented. Buijnsters and Buijnsters-Smets (Papertoys p272-3 - illustrating this copy) suggest this boat may be the 'Dutchman', built in 1823.AUD 750.00 [Appr.: EURO 529.25 US$ 571.8 | £UK 458.5 | JP¥ 63661] Book number 9862
