Description: 's-Gravenhage, Martinus Nijhoff, 1938. 4to. W. front. portrait of F.G.Waller and 61 collotype portraits. Original full blue publ. cloth, gilt- and blindtooled. (Lower outer hinge some wear; well bound). (XX, 551, I (blank) pp.). (Uncut front & lower edge). A very good copy of the first and only edition of still one of the authoritative biographical dictionaries of Dutch engravers, the life's work of François Gerard Waller, who worked on his project until about 1921-22 when his health deteriorated and work had to be suspended. When Waller died, in November 1934, Dr. Juynboll was prepared to work through Waller's manuscript version and supplement information where possible. A reprint edition of the book was published in 1974 by our firm [B.M.Israel BV Boekhandel en antiquariaat] and sold out completely about 8 years ago.
