Abstract

Dutch painters, is considered to be a model of renaissance prose-writing. It has been preserved in two editions (1604 and 1618), the first of which was printed during Van Mander's life-time. Nevertheless, due to its greater readability the second edition has long been preferred. Recent research has focussed on the 1604 edition for textual matters; its printing history, however, has not yet generally been appreciated. It is the aim of the present article to study the typographical features of the Schilder-Boeck and to compare these with other books, produced by the same printer Jacob de Meester at Alkmaar. For this purpose, 11 copies of the Schilder-Boeck have been examined along with 20 items originating from the same press. Little attention is paid to the contents of the Schilder-Boeck, as this has already been done in previous bibliographical descriptions. The collational formula reveals some adaptations for the sake of updating and correction. Running-titles occur on every page,
