Abstract

TITLE 231 A CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER Non est beatus, qui se non putat; quid enim refert qualis status tuus sit, si tibi videtur malus? In 1950, the young Robert Feenstra joined the Editorial Board of the Tijdschrift voor Rechtsgeschiedenis, as it re-launched itself following suspen- sion of its publication, a result of the dislocation of intellectual life brought about by the barbaric rule of the Nazis. What a challenge! In 2000, we are glad to share in celebrating the astounding fact that Professor Feenstra has remained, and remains, an active, creative and progressive Editor of the Journal. What an achievement! Seneca would seemingly have had little doubt that Professor Feenstra has enjoyed his long association with our Journal, and the Publishers, several gen- erations of us, can have had no doubt of this whatsoever! Our periodic atten- dance of Editorial Board meetings has given us a glimpse of his extraordinary gifts as an historian, linguist and lawyer, and of the deep pleasure which he has derived from discussions with his colleagues, amongst whom there exists a most wonderful atmosphere of respect and personal friendship. Our bilateral rela- tions with Professor Feenstra have shown other aspects of his talents – organi- zational skills, diplomacy and a firm grasp of financial needs and realities. On financial questions we have, indeed, had to negotiate with him, and have come to the conclusion that his guiding principle in such matters, like that of the Earls of Darlington, is nec temere, nec timide. We have found his approach simply irresistible! We wish to record our heartfelt thanks to Professor Feenstra for these fifty years of dedication to academic excellence and the dissemination of research and knowledge, and speak for ourselves, as well as for future generations of Publishers, in expressing the hope that he will continue to serve his beloved publication for many years to come.
