Abstract

ISABELLA H. VAN EEGHEN Jacob Keijns in 'The Atlas' in Amsterdam, 1629-38, and the Hondius family An interesting book was published in 1980 to celebrate the centenary of the library of the Free University in Amsterdam. Entitled simply Een Vrije Universiteitsbibliotheek, it not only describes the library itself and its history but also contains a section called 'Uit de werkkamer' [From the study] in which members of the library staff describe important items in their keep- ing. Among these articles is one by Mrs M. H. G. Clement-van Alkemade on 'Bijzondere kaarten in de verzameling' [Unusual maps in the collection]; pp. 341-55. She begins with the well-known Bos library, and the first item in this that she discusses is the 'Afteeckeninge van de Cap S.

Mrs Clement writes that she found only one other copy and that was in Paris.
