246 BOEKBESPREKING Jacob van Campen, schilder en bouwmeester 1595-1657. By P. T. A. Swillens. 302 pp. (19 figs.) Assen. Ten years after Hendrik de Keyser's death in 1621 his colleague in the City Works of Amsterdam, the chief master mason Cornelis Danckerts, published the first monograph on a Dutch architect, his Architectura moderna. Not all De Keyser's works are included, but the picture that it gives is balanced, and it perceptively lays stress, even in its title, on a change in Dutch architecture which was heralded in De Keyser's works. The Haarlem painter and architect Salomon de Bray wrote in the introduction: 'Our present flourishing age, in which we see the true [i.e. Roman] architecture as resurrected, gives the same to us so libe- rally... that it may be hoped that Architecture ... will arrive at its highest level once again'. De Bray, a generation younger than De Keyser, had himself contributed to this resurrection in the design of 1629 for Warmond Castle which Saenredam copied, and he must have known his contemporary Jacob van Campen, at that time also living in Haarlem, whose house for Balthazar Coymans of 1625 is illustrated in Danckerts' work.
