For Rembrandt: White/ Boon 111/II; H. de la Fontaine Verwey, Uit de wereld van het boek II, p.130-131; Ackley 84. "Dat Elias Herckmans's boek vol rijmelarij over de zeevaart bij bibliofielen zeer in trek is, is niet de verdienste van deze auteur zelf. Het wordt veroorzaakt door het feit dat een van de zeventien [sic] illustraties van de hand van Rembrandt is. Hoogstwaarschijnlijk is het een zuiver historische afbeelding en stelt ze het 'scheepje van Fortuin' voor, tenminste zo is men de prent in de achttiende eeuw gaan noemen. Haar naam ontleent de afbeelding aan de naakte vrouwenfiguur, de godin Fortuna, die met haar adem als gunstige wind het zeil van de boot vult. (...) De figuur in het midden is of Augustus of Antonius. Op de achtergrond is de tweekoppige god Janus." (exhib. cat. Goed gezien. Tien eeuwen wetenschap in handschrift en druk, no.33 (Leyden U.B.,1987)). The allegorical etching, showing the "Ship of Fortune", is one of the 6 etchings Rembrandt Van Rijn made for 3 bookpublications. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXXI.

"In 1762 the condemnation of Émile by the Paris Parlement forced him to flee from France and settle in Neuchâtel under the protection of the king of Prussia. (...) the work is not just a manual of education, but, as Rousseau himself points out, a philosophical treatise on the goodness of human nature. It is less concerned with laying down the practical details of a specific pedagogic method than with describing the fundamental principles which underlie the whole of man's development from infancy to maturity. Rousseau's ultimate object is to teach the art of living, for man's first duty, he says, is to be human." (Encycl. of Philosophy VII, p.219ff).

Lot 1612: Schasz, J.A. (= pseud. of G. Paape/ P. 't Hoen).

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Schasz, J.A. (= pseud. of G. Paape/ P. 't Hoen). Reize door het aapenland. N.pl., n.publ., 1788, (4),IV,128p., orig. wr. - Occas. sl. soiled. Wr. worn and stained. = "In 1788 publiceert een zekere medisch doctor J.A. Schasz een satirisch reisverslag waarin hij zijn lezers meesleept op een onthutsende en hilarische vlucht naar het apenland. De apen van dienst, alle genummerd, leggen alle bekende menselijke ondeugden aan de dag. Vermoedelijk komt dat doordat ze verlangen mensen te worden. Maar hoe word je zoiets, mens? Daarover moet vergaderd worden! Na talloze sessies besluiten de apen tot een algeheel afhakken van hun staarten, een zelfverminking die Schasz met wrede humor beschrijft. In de Reize door het Aapenland hekelt doctor Schasz het politieke opportunisme, de menselijke hypocrisie die van alle tijden is. Maar dat gebeurt met superieure spot, want onze zonderlinge doctor-achter wie de gestalte van Gerrit Paape schuil gaat is zelf allerminst een zedenprediker. Als Swift en Voltaire is hij een wereldwijs observator van de aangeklede aap. Zijn satire is langdurig actueel. Dit kostelijke verhaal biedt geen stof voor gevoelige harten en geen troost voor geleden onrecht. De Reize door het Aapenland wil andermaal pijn doen, met wijs vermaak over de zotheden van de wereld. De Reize is een nauwgezette waarneming van wat er gebeurt op elke plek waar meer dan twee politici samenkomen." (from the preface written by Gerrit Komrij for the reprint edition, Van Tilt 2007). Buisman 887; Scheepers II, 154 (both under P. 't Hoen).
