EDITORIAL It is with great sorrow that the managing editors have to record the death of Prof. G. W. Ovink on 4 February 1984. Willem Ovink was one of the founders of Quaerendo. As one of the manag- ing editors and the magazine's modern printing editor it was he more than anyone else who worked for and watched over the quality of both content and design. Over the years his expertise and his sound and sincere judge- ment were both support to lean on and an inspiring example to his fellow editors. We shall continue to miss his unique qualities as a man and a scholar. In the following pages readers will find an obituary by Herman de la Fon- taine Verwey, an old friend and colleague of Willem Ovink's, followed by a select bibliography compiled by the editors. The editors take this opportunity to report that Dr. Ernst Braches, extraor- dinary professor of the history of 19th- and 20th-century books and printing and librarian to the University of Amsterdam, has accepted the invitation extended to him to step into the gap left by Prof. Ovink's death, both as modern printing editor and as a managing editor. From issue 1 of Volume xm (1984) the managing editors have also been joined by Mr A. C. Schuytvlot, of the Rare Book Department of Amsterdam University Library.
