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 Liège. 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 Lübeck 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.

Stundenbuch Der Katharina Von Kleve [ the Book of Hours of Catherine of Cleves ] the Facsimile Volume with the Commentary Volume
. 2 volumes.Consisting of: Die Miniaturen aus dem Stundenbuch der Katharina von Kleve mit einer Einleitung und Erläuterungen von John Plummer. Berlin, Gebr. Mann Verlag, 1966. 8°. 359pp. Original hardcover, illustrated slipcase. With many illustrations in colour. Fine copy. Original artif. leather binding gilt title on spine WITH the commentary: GORISSEN, F. - Das Stundenbuch der Katharina von Kleve. Analyse und Kommentar. Berlin, 1974. 1204 pp. with 695 illustrations. Cloth. a fine set
¶ The original is in New York, Pierpont Morgan Gallery. M. 945 and M. 917.Origin was Northern Netherlands (Utrecht), c. 1440. Scribe: One hand for text and rubric (anonymous) Painter: One hand, the Master of Catherine of Cleves The Book of Hours of Catherine of Cleves has been described in the following way : "The best-known and one of the most important, not only of Dutch, but of all medieval manuscripts is the Hours of Catherine of Cleves, which was made about 1440 for the Duchess of Guelders of the same name. Because it is one of the richest books of hours ever made, both from the point of view of its texts and cycles of illumination, many of which are not only unusual but unique, it is also a key monument in the history of Books of Hours." The Hours was divided into two parts in the middle of the 1800s by an unknown person, most often thought to be an unscrupulous art dealer seeking to make a profit. The second part of the book (M. 917) surfaced again in 1963, and was acquired in 1970 by the Pierpont Morgan Gallery. The book as a whole numbers 369 pages, although eleven pages still remain missing. The Hours contains 157 miniatures (originally 168) with corresponding border decorations, of which 32 were full-page and another 136 half-page miniatures. The finest quality pergament was used in the book's production, in which a feather brush was first used to draw the miniature onto the page before it was painted. Given the above facts it is not at all surprising that the Book of Hours of Catherine of Cleves has drawn the discerning attention of many art historians; the book has nonetheless in one regard rebuffed the critical and inquisitive eyes of its admirers. The many commentaries on the Hours of Catherine of Cleves show that there is some considerable strain in attempting to locate a symbolic or iconographic significance motivating border decoration and miniature. Noting their incongruity, one must nevertheless admit that a relationship is effected between border and miniature by the mere fact that they cohabit the same page. This effect seems to be of a fantastic nature-that is, it is produced by the juxtaposition of seemingly irreconcilable elements. Without knowing whether to read the border decorations as symbol or as ornament one will never be sure whether one's viewing of the page is motivated or arbitrary, a product of text or fantasy. Beyond an effect of fascination, one might attempt to elucidate the particular play between a miniature and its border on a singular page, like that of the "Adoration of the Magi".

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.

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.

NOYONS, printed in 550 numb. copies (this one is no. 440 ), original wrappers,printed in brown and red, the text ib black and red. (De Jong 897). Joost van den Vondel, a pseudonym used by Albert Helman. Helman [ = Lodewijk Alphonsus Maria Lichtveld ] was a member of the Artist's Resistance in the Netherlands and wrote poetry about the Resistance. Joost van den Vondel was a famous poet in 17th century Holland. Helman wrote"Rei van Smeeckelingen" in the style of a 17th century poem and it deals with the deportation of the Jews, names of occupiers and leaders in Germany and collaborators in Holland. It also has religious undertones like Joost van den Vondel's poetry. Helman did this because if his writings were published and displayed under Joost van den Vondel's name, then people would purchase it and the Germans would not know it was really written by a member of the Resistance; in Dutch; dated 1944.

De teksten die Wessels selecteerde, hebben alles te maken met de onbevangenheid en de speelsheid van het tegen het verkennende kind. Maar voor wie de drukker/vormgever/uitgever beter kent, valt er ook een persoonlijk statement in te lezen. Waar ligt de grens van droom en werkelijkheid, op welk punt vloeien ze in elkaar over, wat neem ik mee uit het ene dat ik in het andere achterlaat? 6 katernen : ill. ; 20x27 cm Toegevoegd een gedicht van Hans Berghuis t.g.v. het afscheid van de groep.( private press ).
