Very rare publication, hardly ever auctioned or offered for sale

“Met uitzondering van enkele streken, waarover engelen daarenboven in vergelijking slechts kort handelt, heeft hij zich op zijne wandelingen vooral zulke plaatsen uitgekozen, die minder algemeen door den grooten stroom van reizigers in Gelderland worden bezocht. Menigeen zal daardoor den wandelaar volgen in oorden, die hij niet der moeite waardig had gerekend op te zoeken, en die toch misschien in eenvoudig landelijk schoon niet behoeven onder te doen voor plaatsen, die den algemeenen roem van schoonheid als bij uitsluiting bezitten

Engelen was a poet and a regional judge, who spent four years as a representative in the Lower House of the States General.
Adriaan Walraven Engelen was the son of the councillor at the imperial court (1812) and president of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands Hendrik Engelen and his wife Gerarda Johanna Dibbets. He was educated at the Royal Institute Van Kinsbergen in Elburg and studied law and contemporary law (1820-1826) and literature (1829) at the Hogeschool in Groningen. From 1830 to 1832 he volunteered for military service with the Groningse Vrijwillige Jagers, and he also participated in the Ten Days' Campaign.
