Abstract

Book reviews The seventeenth-century Orange-Nassau library. The catalogue compiled by Anthonie Smets in 1686, the 1749 auction catalogue, and other contemporary sources, ed. with introd. and notes by A.D. RENTING & J.T.C. RENTING-KUIJPERS. With notes on the manuscripts by A.S. Korteweg. Utrecht, HES, 1993. 856 pp., illus., ISBN 90-6194-287-X, f 265. Until a few decades ago there had really never been any sign of overwhelming attention being paid to the collection of books of the House of Orange. Most publications since De Oranje ,Nassau-boeker? en de Oranjepenningen in de Koninklgke Biblio- theek en in het Koninkl#k Penn ing-kab z*net te 's-Gravenhage [The Orange-Nassau library and the Orange medals in the Royal Library and the Royal Medals Cabinet in The Hague] by W.G.C.
