¶ August Aimé Balkema, After studying French literature, in 1936 opened a bookstore in the Huis aan de Drie Grachten ("House on Three Canals") in Amsterdam. During the Second World War, the bookstore was used to clandestinely print and publish works of poetry and other literature. In the series De Vijf Ponden Pers, which Balkema started in 1942, fifty works were published during the war, including works by Dutch poets like A. Roland Holst and Martinus Nijhoff as well as books in English and French, languages banned by the German occupiers. The prominent typographer Jan van Krimpen handled many of these publications. In 1945 Balkema published a catalogue of the series under the name Catalogus van vijftig boeken en boekjes zonder toestemming uitgeven in de jaren 1942-1945 ("Catalogue of fifty books published without permission in the years 1942-1945").[In 1943 Balkema, along with Adriaan Morriën en Fred Batten, started the series Het Zwarte Schaap. After the war, this series was taken over by the publishing house De Bezige Bij.

LA CURNE DE SAINTE-PALAYE
Memoires Sur L'ancienne Chevalerie
0. 1781. consideree comme un etablissement politique et militaire. Nouvelle edition, augmentee d'un volume. Three volumes, Paris, 1781; xii, 391, 320, xvi, 456pp.; cont. light green paper-covered boards, spines simply decorated with gilt rules and bay-leaves, gilt meander rule to boards, yellow silk markers; spines faded & rubbed at head and tail, with loss of green paper, extremities also rubbed, including corners (mostly just the tips), small typographical bookplates of Otto A. Hirth, very small 19th. C. oval lib. stamp at foot of title-pages. A key study of the subject which influenced generation upon generation of antiquaries, scholars, and poets, augmented in this edition, including a long essay (c.250pp.) "Memoires historiques sur la Chasse".Some passages in this particular set have been whitened with chalk, making them a little harder to read but not illegible; we could have had these chalk marks removed but, we surmise that they may have been made in preparing a new edition of the work, and did not wish to detract from its historical and bibliographical value.
