Groeneveld, Zwaard van de geest, p.90; idem, Nieuwe boeken voor den nieuwen tijd, p.92-44 and passim: "Van den vos Reynaerde werd door De Amsterdamsche Keurkamer gepresenteerd als het 'nieuwe geestige vervolg van het middeleeuwsche dierenepos', maar was onmiskenbaar bedoeld als antisemitische propaganda. Het boek vormde een nationaal-socialistisch pleidooi voor raszuiverheid, voor een 'natuurlijke orde' waarin het volk geregeerd werd door een krachtige leider, en waarin de joden werden afgeschilderd als degenen die deze waarden ondermijnden" (p.92f).

Binding sl. rubbed along extremities. = Rare."De schrijver: hij is negentien als zijn boek wordt gepubliceerd. Hij baart opzien en in literaire kringen zijn alle ogen op hem gericht. Hij wordt zesenzeventig jaar oud. Er is na dat ene boek nooit meer een letterkundig werk van het verschenen. Het boek: het telt maar eenenzestig pagina's. Het wordt, al bij het verschijnen, beschouwd als de quintessens van 'het moderne levensgevoel'. Het zal een hardnekkig ondergronds bestaan blijven leiden, ook al zijn de schaarse edities bij voortduring alleen in beperkte kring verkrijgbaar. Weinigen hebben het gelezen: toch duikt het op in nagenoeg alle studies over de tijd waarin het verscheen. De verzamelde commentaren overtreffen de tekst vele malen in lengte. WIe dit boek nooit onder ogen heeft gehad loopt grote kans toch in aanraking te zijn gekomen met de symbolische naweeën de cultus ervan. Het is er in dat geval mee als met een mythologie zonder oertekst, een godsdienst zonder bijbel.(...) De schrijver is 'de merkwaardigste verschijning van het Jonge Wenen' genoemd. Het boek gaat door voor 'de klassieke roman over de identiteitscrisis van het fin-de-siècle' en voor 'een van de mooiste poëtische documenten van het symbolisme'."
