H.Th. Wijdeveld; R.N. Roland Holst. Wendingen - Portretten van M. de Klerk. 1st edition, Amsterdam, 1924. 30 pp., including 14 pp. with advertisements. 29 reproductions after portraits of many well-known people. Hardcover in collotype by Tine Baanders.

The architect Michel de Klerk died in 1923. Five issues of Wendingen were dedicated to him; later these were published as a book. This is the third issue which contains portraits of the versatile architect, who was sometimes referred to as the Dutch Frank Lloyd Wright (portraits of, among others, Toorop, Cuypers, Gratama, De Kerk’s relatives, and self portraits). The other issues can be found as 6-2 (Reisschetsen), 6-4/5 (Onuitgevoerde werken), 6-9/10 (Uitgevoerde Bouwwerken) and 7-10 (Meubelen en Interieurs).

Fair copy. Front cover is fair with brown spots (see picture) and some minor damage at the edges. Back cover good; light vertical fold. Spine worn at the ends with missing parts, but fairly good between the ribbon. Raffia (beige) excellent. Title page with owner's entry (top right) and some spots at bottom (see photo). Interior otherwise very good and without writing.
