Abstract

During the summer of 1678, H. Beverland, a native of Zeeland, compiled the manuscript De Prostibulis Veterum. The work deals with all kinds of erotic subjects in literature from classical to his own times and is subdivided into 14 capita. Beverland rewrote the second chapter to form an autonomous booklet entitled Peccatum Originale, the first edition of which (1678) was put on sale anonymously. The second edition appeared with the author's name given in full on the title-page and shortly afterwards Beverland was arrested. The court demanded delivery of the manuscript treatise De Prostibulis Veterum and sentenced the author to exile. Beverland accepted the demand, but not until he had made a copy of it which he later first completed in England and then destroyed. The original passed via the heirs of Professor Spanheim to the University Library at Leiden where it still is at shelf-mark BPL 1994.
