Very limited edition of 24 copies! As new.

Three moving letters from Reve to three women unknown to him with great sorrow in their lives. He is an impressive comforter and counsellor.
The reason for these letters was the award of the P.C. Hooft Prize to Reve. This award was celebrated in the Allerheiligste Hartkerk in Amsterdam on 24 October 1969, and broadcast on television. The programme led to many (over 250) reactions, including the three letters to which Reve wrote the replies that are included in this book.

The first of these three letters was previously published in ‘La Vierge des Pauvres. Advies voor een bedevaart naar Banneux’ (Bibliografie van Reefdrukken 2007-7), the other two letters are first published here.
