About this Item

Small octavo. 18ff. From an edition of 70 copies, this is one of twenty Roman numeral copies reserved for owners of the Press. This copy was designated for Nelly van Eyck-Benjamin, the wife of Dutch poet Pieter Nicolaas van Eyck, who was one of the founders of the Press. De Zilverdistel is considered the first private press in the Netherlands. The text consists of meditations on the passion of Christ and is one of two books written by Bertken, who was cloistered in a small cell in Utrecht for 57 years. This edition was printed to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the posthumous publication of this text and marks the first use of Lucien Pissarro's Distel type, which is printed in three colors and augmented by various large decorative initials, likely drawn by S. H. de Roos. Bound in original limp vellum with snowflake design in gilt on upper cover, title gilt on spine. Bookseller Inventory # 23562
