PAPER GAME. - Het Stoomboot Spel.

Arnhem, P.A. de Jong [183-?]. Woodcut broadside (49x41cm) with handcolouring. Folded, with some wear, a few small holes and stains; not a bad 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 A.H. Binger, like the similar 'Nieuw Stoombootspel', seems to have been printed a few times in the twenties and thirties, with the imprints of de Jong or Moolenijzer of Amsterdam. Small nicks in the block are the same in all printings but damage to one word that is both damaged and undamaged in the Amsterdam and Arnhem printings, and is replaced with letterpress here, suggests the block was shared between the two printers. The boat pictured, the Mercurius, ran between Amsterdam and Zaandam from 1826 to 1840.
