Abstract

Varia bibliographica 'NOT IN VAN DOORNINCK': THE AUTHORSHIP OF Yerlant verlost en hersteld A copy of this anonymous book was recently acquired by the British Museum and the following note arises from the attempt to establish its authorship. Since it is fully described in Knuttel un- der number i33971 I shall provide a short title only: Yerlant verlost en hersteld, door... Willerrv de IIIde, Koning van Groot-Britarrnien... Naaukeurig by een gestelt door een Liefhebber der Historicii, etc. Amsterdam: by Jan ten Hoorn, 1690. Knuttel statcs that the plates arc by Jan Luyken, but does not offer even a tentative attribution of authorship for the text. There is no entry for it in Van Doorninck2, nor in Kempenaer3, under 'Liefhebber' or 'N.N.', the signature of the address to the reader. Doorninck does how- ever give a clue with the reference under `Liefliebber der Historien' to 'L.S.' These initials occur on the titlepage of a book which is described as having the title Het leven en bedryfvan Syn Hoogheyt Willem Hendrik de Darde and are said to stand for Lambertus Sylvius, i.e. Lambertus van den Bos. The British Museum has this work with a slightly different title: Het leven en bedr??f van Willem de Darde... Door L.S., with an equally short title on the engraved title-page. The other particulars correspond with the book listed by Van Doorninck and it has long been ascribed in the British Museum General Catalogue to Lambertus van den Bos. Published in 16g4 in two substantial volumes, also by Jan ten Hoorn and also with plates known to be by Jan Luyken4, the campaign in Ireland is dealt within it towards the beginning of Stuk 2, not in a coherent chapter, but its events interspersed among others in chronological sequence. Nevertheless certain passages can be recognized very easily for comparison and show remarkable similarities; in fact, the later work adopts whole sentences word for word from the earlier publication.
