Description: HEEMSKERK, J. v. Batavische arcadia, waar in: Onder 't Loof-werk van Liefkooserye, gehandelt werdt. Amst., A. & A. Schoonburg, 1751. (16), 656, (48) pp. W. engr. front. & 5 fold. engr. plates (i.a. a nice fold. view of Batavia). Cont. vellum. (A few marg. stains, a bit browned/foxed in places). The first Dutch pastoral novel, which served as a model for num. "arcadia" writers (up to the 19th c.). At the same time intended as a lesson in Dutch history. First publication (anonymously) in 1637; the author was rather ashamed of its "frivolity"; consequently, later editions were augmented with long, learned notes by Van Baerle.
Estimated Price: € 70
