Abstract

JOHAN GERRITSEN Jan Seversz prints a Chronicle On 16 June 1988 a historical dissertation was defended at Groningen. Its subject was a book; its author a historian.' The book was Die cronycke van Hollandt Zeelandt en Vrieslant, a work usually referred to in Dutch as the Divisiekroniek because of its carving up historical time into divisions. It was printed at Leiden, by Jan Seversz, and published in 1517; later, presumably around 1530, the remaining sheets, which must have represented a con- siderable part of the edition, were reissued with a supplement taken from Jan van Doesborch's Chronicle of Brabant of that year to bring it up to date. Chapter IV of the dissertation is devoted to its printing history. In some respects the subject was not new, and so the author, not realizing the need for more specialized help, stuck to the available, reputable sources, particu- larly Nijhoff-Kronenberg, and consulted Gaskell's New Introduction. As a result she remained unaware that the application of analytical bibliography to the study of early printing is only a relatively recent phenomenon.2 2 On investigation the book proved uncommonly interesting.
