New edition of Van Jason ende Hercules

Created on 16 September 2016

In april 2016  a part of the legacy of the late Prof. Dr. W.L. Braekman was sold at an auction in Brussels. To the surprise of everyone an unknown edition of Van Jason ende Hercules was among his books. It was sold by the Erfgoedbibliotheek Hendrik Conscience in Antwerp and I was able to look into it. The most interesting of the book is that it says on the frontpage that ‘these books are to be sold by Willem Vorsterman’.  Probably it was the last book Jan van Doesborch published before he moved to Utrecht. I wrote an article in Dutch about the book.

Best wishes,


Piet Franssen
