The nucleus of Weyerman’s (1677-1747) literary oeuvre is the weekly periodical he published under varying titles from 1720 to the end of his life. He was its only contributor and editor. Its content mainly consists of witty and satirical comments on the customs and manners of his co-citizens. It forms a mirror of the Dutch society in the second quarter of the eighteenth century. These are the decades just before romanticism and enlightenment begin to be the leading paradigms.
