Nijhoff van Hattum, item 53: Waller 343: A printed dedication on leaf *3 recto and verso to 'den Heere Andries Schoemaker en den Heere Gerrit Schoemaker, keurige konstbeminnaaren, ...' by Claas Bruin. In 1730 a second edition appeared of the 'Kleefsche en Zuid-Hollandsche Arkadia' enriched with engraved plates. Two years later, in the year of Bruin's death, the accompanying volume containing a journey along the villages of North Holland appears, here offered. The book has a somewhat different set up compared to the 'Zuid Hollandsche Arkadia', this time it is in the form of a discussion between 4 pious travelling companions on a journey through West Vriesland which takes 9 days. Among the ca 120 villages visited / described we find Egmond, Heiloo, Castricum, Bakkum, Heemskerk, Velsen, Bloemendaal etc etc. The engraved front. depicts a.o. 2 putti holding up a drawing of the Castle of Medemblik, engraved by Zeeman, as are all the other engravings. Here and there some leaves browned, outer hinges need some binder's attention. A very good copy.
