Abstract

Notes and news FREDERIK W.D.C.A. VAN HATTUM † In every representative collection of old Dutch books formed since the beginning of the last century there is a predominance of two classes of work: topographical books relating to the Low Countries, and song-books. Guicciardini's volume on the Low Countries, first published in 1567, illuminated with town plans in the form of bird's- eye views, was succeeded by an unbroken stream of illustrated descriptions of the ancient towns and districts in which, particularly during the eighteenth century, much attention was also focused on villages, castles and country estates. But whereas the country's topography was an enduring feature in Dutch book production, the heyday of the illustrated song-book was confined to a short period, the 'Golden Age' of about 1600 to 1635, when the nation's best printers and artists applied themselves with evident enthusiasm to the production of such works - large and small, but almost always in oblong format. Nowadays both topographical works and song-books have become exceedingly rare. It has become impossible to form complete collections of the two genres.
