ACKERSDIJCK, JAN (1790- 1861)
Verhaal Eener Reize in Rusland, Gedaan in Het Jaar 1835. 2 Volumes.
. Groningen, W. van Boekeren 1840. [VI],XIV,302; [IV],VI,[2],363p. With engraved frontispiece to volume 1. Contemp. half black calf leather binding with leather corners, gilt titles and decorations on the spines, marbled paper covered boards . Text sl. darkened, which is usual for this work, pinhole in margin on pp. 130/131, First (only) edition. An account of the author's three months crossing through Russia, with visits to St Petersburg, Moscow, Gorki and Kazan, for the greater part written in the form of a diary. It is regarded as one of the most interesting and one of the most reliable sources for the knowledge of Russia in the early nineteenth century, full of details about Russian history, culture, daily life, administration, institutions, commerce, etc. Jan Ackersdijck had been a lawyer in Utrecht and in 1825 was appointed professor of political sciences in Lige. After the Belgian revolution of 1830 he left the Southern Netherlands and the following year was appointed professor in Utrecht. He there occupied himself with a variety of subjects, public law, political history, colonial policy, rural economy, etc. He also lectured on statistics and economic theory, and for that has been credited with being the first academic economist in the Netherlands. Though he published a number of smaller works on these subjects he did not expose his economic theory in a more systematic way, yet he is said to have considered himself a follower of Malthus. He was convinced of the importance of own observation of foreign countries and therefore made travels to most European countries. The present book on his travel to Russia is his only more extended publication. He travelled all over Europe to collect data on the geography, population, society, trade, etc. paving the way and laying the foundation for the disciplines that later in the 19th century would be called 'economy' and 'sociology'. Ackersdijck left Utrecht in June 1835, and travelled by way of Hamburg, Kiel and Lbeck to St. Petersburg, and from there to Novgorod, Moscow, Nizhniy Novgorod, Kazan, Simbirsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Hamburg to return to Utrecht in October of the same year.

In een zeer kort Voorberigt betuigt de Schrijver zijne dankbaarheid voor het vereerend onthaal, dat, gelijk hij zich uitdrukt, zijner eenvoudige lettervruchten tot heden heeft mogen ten deel vallen. Dat er zijn, die in zoodanige werken smaak vinden, lijdt wel geenen twijfel; maar dat menigeen den tijd nuttiger zoude kunnen doorbrengen, is mede niet te ontkennen. Blijft er bij een zeker gedeelte der lezende wereld steeds verlangen naar Romans, men zorge, dat er goede Romans geleverd worden.

NICOLIS, F.
Bell Beakers Today: Pottery, People, Culture, Symbols in Prehistoric Europe
. 2001, 2 volumes, 736pp. black and white illustrations, HB. These two volumes present over sixty contributions, from and international colloquium held in Trento, Italy, in 1998, which provide an invaluable overview of the Bell Beaker culture and recent developments in scholarship. The papers cover sites and discoveries in Spain and Portugal, Italy and Sicily, France, the Netherlands, Britain and Ireland, eastern and central Europe, as well as more thematic discussions of, for example, radiocarbon dating, metallurgy, society and culture, European contacts, technology, tools, gender and burial rituals. The majority of the papers are in English, although most European languages are represented along with English abstracts. One of the most puzzling archaeological phenomena of prehistoric Europe is the widespread appearance of a specific form of ceramic vessel, a decorated, thin-walled, handleless drinking cup known as a bell beaker, throughout western and central continental Europe and the British Isles during the second half of the third millennium B.C. The bell beakers were often found in male burials that also included archer's wrist guards of polished stone, V-perforated buttons (with two holes drilled from one side at an angle until they converged to form a single V-shaped channel), and copper daggers. Archaeologists refer to this phenomenon as the "Bell Beaker complex" or, more efficiently, simply as "Bell Beakers." The earliest form of Bell Beaker called the Maritime Bell Beaker probably originated in the vibrant copper-using communities of the Tagus estuary in Portugal around 2800 - 2700 BC and spread from there to many parts of western Europe. An overview of all available sources from southern Germany concluded that the Bell Beaker Culture was a new and independent culture in that area, contemporary with the Corded Ware Culture.This conclusion was supported by a review of radiocarbon dates for Bell Beaker across Europe, which showed that the earliest dates for Bell Beaker were 2900 BC in Iberia. This makes the style contemporary with Corded Ware, but beginning in a different region of Europe. Bell Beaker has been suggested as a candidate for an early Indo-European culture, more specifically, an ancestral proto-Celtic. Despite the date this work came out in 2006.

VEHMEYER, H.M.,
Clocks: Their Origin and Development 1320-1880. 2 Volumes.
. Wilsele, Belgium, 1st. edition, 2004, 1032 pages and about 950 colour illustrations. bibliography, index; .small-folio sized, immaculate new set in box and still in shrink wraps.( 25 x 33.1 cm )
A completely rewritten and vastly expanded version of an earlier publication in Dutch (Vehmeyer, Antieke Uurwerken - Een familienverzameling, 1994, 624 pages ) this work is therefore vastly more accessible to most collectors. It is basically a detailed history of the mechanical clock in Europe, illustrated primarily with examples from the extraordinary collection of the author's family. The 1994 edition showed 233 clocks in detail; the 2004 edition has grown to 330 clocks so shown. Therefore, the book is also a massive collection catalogue. Each clock in the family collection is catalogued on two (or more) large (13x10 inches) pages, with about half a page of text describing maker, dial, movement and case, half a page of colour photos of details, and a large, full page colour picture of the clock facing the initial page. The clocks are arranged by country (52 from Germany, 109 from the Netherlands, 94 from England, 83 from France. ). Within each country, they are in chronological order. Part I comprises a comprehensive introduction to the origins of clockmaking, while Part II presents a comparative horological history of the leading European clockmaking countries: Germany, England, France, Italy and last but not least, the Netherlands. The book has a lot more to offer than just historical and technical facts about clocks. On the basis of the Vehemeyer family collection of more than 350 clocks, which are illustrated at the end of each relevant chapter, it gives insight into the relative importance of each country and the mutual influence these countries exerted on each other. Owing to its large number of beautifully produced photographs of both the exterior and very often also the interior of the various artefacts, as well as the explanatory accompanying texts, which follow a set pattern, this book will prove to be of interest to both laymen and specialist alike. 9053494316 / ISBN-13: 978-9053494318. Very heavy set, postage for about 9 KG. (ISBN: 9053494316) .
