Abstract

A Type Specimen of Christoffel van Dijck? It is a matter for regret that relatively little documentary evidence re- lating to the life and career of one of the foremost punchcutters of the seventeenth century, Christoffel van Dijck, has survived. His career was summarised by Charles Enschede in 1908, and more recently the com- pilers of the series of Type specimen facsimiles 1-1 S, and the late Miss Netty Hoeflake 1 have published a few further details, but he remains elusive. After his death in 1669 he was succeeded by his son Abraham, who died only a very few years later, in 1672, and in 1673 the foundry was sold. It was advertised in the Oprechte Haarlemse Courant on 6 April for sale on 10 April, when most of the equipment was bought by the printer and publisher Daniel Elsevier, who had only recently also ac- quired much from the sale of Hillebrant van Wouw of The Hague. 2 No copy of any type specimen relating to the sale of Van Dijck's material is known to exist. There are, however, at Cambridge University Library, a number of fragments which, from internal evidence of various kinds, may be attrib-
