Description
Gesigneerd; Godfried Bomans - Sprookjes - 1946
Illustrated, Literature - Quantity: 1 - Signed by author - Book

Beautiful copy signed by the author (Godfried Bomans 20/30 December 1946, Amsterdam) of his famous ‘Sprookjes’. My father was a publisher at Elsevier during and shortly after the Second World War, and therefore had personal contact with Bomans. The sprookjes (fairy tales) were intended for adults. The illustrations were made by H.L. Prenen, a friend of Bomans and popular artist / illustrator in those years. Harry Prenen was also a history teacher at the Mendel College in Haarlem, my secondary school in the mid-1960s.
This edition also demonstrated the post-war scarcity, judging by the binding.
The book is in good condition, only the top of the spine shows minor damage. Endpaper with signature is stained. The pictures show the otherwise good condition of this book.
