The aims of this publication are twofold. In the first place it gives a complete census of the woodcuts in Dutch and Flemish incunabula, and a record of all places in which they appear. Both the book in which the woodcut (or series of woodcuts) appears for the first time and all repetitions of that woodcut before 1501 have been registered. In the second place a survey and analysis of the woodcuts used by each printer have been given. With this inventory dr. Kok has developed a very accurate dating system for incunabula. Over 3800 different illustrations have been found in the incunabula printed in the Low Countries, which illustrate the history of the use of woodcuts - the different states, the different stages of wear and tear.

Review:

"This massive and painstaking work will last for generations."
David McKitterick, Trinity College, Cambridge. In: Quaerendo, Vol. 44, Nos. 1-2 (2014), pp. 91-99.

"Ina Kok's weighty four-volume book represents the summa of incunabula studies and is likely to play an essential role in all future studies of early printing in Northern Europe. This well-organized and masterful opus will be essential for igniting the imagination of students. It has made a powerful impression on me."
Kathryn Rudy, University of St Andrews. In: Print Quarterly, Vol. 32, No 2 (2015), pp. 192-194.

"A milestone in incunabula research."
Ursula Rautenberg, Erlangen University. In: Archiv für Geschichte des Buchwesens, Vol. 69 (2014), pp. 249-251.

"This catalogue will be useful not only to scholars studying woodcuts that illustrate incunables produced in the Low Countries but also to those interested in related woodcuts in books printed later and/or in other countries, in relationships between woodcuts and other media, and more generally in iconography and book illustration."
Martha W. Driver, Pace University. In: Journal of the Early Book Society, Vol. 17 (2014), pp. 392-294.

"The author has spent decades working on this book compiling an incredible census of illustrations used in editions printed in the 15th Century Netherlands. We cannot compare Ina Kok's book to any other publication submitted for the 2018 Prize. This work, published in four volumes and based on the study of almost four thousand illustrations, is remarkable!"
Fabrizio Govi, ILAB Vice President & Breslauer Prize Secretary

"It was established very quickly that the quality of the bibliographical work submitted was a testament to the vibrancy of the field of bibliographical research!"
Daniel de Simone, prev. Folger Library and Library of Congress & Member of the 2018 ILAB Prize Jury

Ad Infinitum Books
(Mount Vernon, NY, U.S.A.)

Book Description HES & DE GRAAF, Houten, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1,882 pages. This is a four-volume set, all Hardcovers, no dustjackets (as issued). New books. GRAPHIC ARTS. This four-voume set offers a complete census of the woodcuts in Dutch and Flemish incunabula, a list of all the editions in which they have appeared, as well as an analysis of the woodcuts used by every printer active in the Low Countries between 1475 and 1501. The first appearance of a woodcut is registered, as are all repetitions of that woodcut before 1501. It places the woodcuts in their bibliographical context and also considers their merits as book illustrations. The census also provides a very accurate dating system for incunabula by paying attention to the traces of use and wear in the more than 8,000 repeats in later incunabula editions. It establishes the exact sequence of editions of a number of works, and provides a more precise date for many of the undated, and even dated, editions. The chronological review and analysis of the woodcut output per printer offered in this work helps to shed light on such issues as: which woodcuts were made especially for individual printers and which were passed on from printer to printer; which printers borrowed woodblocks; which printers acquired blocks after death of the original owner or the dissolution of his printing house; and which woodcuts are copies rather than originals. Over 3800 distinct woodcuts, many never before published, and reproduced at actual size. 9 x 12.5 inches. (Key Words: Woocuts, Incunabula, Low Countries, Ina Kok, Graphic Arts, Flemish Printers, 1400s, Fifteenth Century, Dutch Printers). book. Seller Inventory # 78710X2
