Title: Een Florentijnsch treurspel. (Translated into Dutch by P.C. Boutens).
Description: [Den Haag, self-published], 1909). With its original longstitch paper binding. (2), 54 p. Set by hand and printed in red and black on Pannekoek paper by The Saint Catherine Press in Bruges in 50 unnumbered copies. First and only edition in this form. Cover has some very vague folds. Early translation into Dutch of A Florentine Tragedy. From a series of self-published translations, all printed sumptuously in tiny print runs, by Pieter Cornelis Boutens (1870-1943), one of the foremost Dutch poets and translators of his age. Longstitch bindings, a deceptively simple way of bookbinding with two visible strings and a knot on the spine, in the 20th century were only used for solemn deluxe books. Rijkse 2.21.
