Description
Willem Frederik Hermans (Sita van de Wissel) - Beertje Bombazijn - 1981
Literature - Quantity: 6 - Limited edition - Book related object

Six cardboard, one-sided printed test pages for Beertje Bombazijn, the children’s book that writer Sita van de Wissel lost in Herman’s novel ‘Uit talloos veel miljoenen’, which also contains a pre-publication of what ultimately became the booklet.

The pages (six of the ultimate fourteen) are uncut and concern the front cover without the punched-out head of the bear. ‘Een woordje vooraf’ by Dick Hosselaar [=W.F. Hermans], three poems and a typographical illustration.

Janssen and Van Stek note in their Hermans bibliography:: ‘Deze versjes werden door de Literaire Loodgieters in het Vondelpark gevonden, waar ze in een dameshandtasje tussen de struiken lagen. Onze dank gaat uit naar de heer Dick Hosselaar [Willem Frederik Hermans], die zo vriendelijk was het voorwoord te verzorgen. Mede dankzij zijn bemiddeling vonden we Lionel Prent (Ewald Spieker) bereid de illustraties te maken.’

Rare.
