Literature - Quantity: 1 - other extra - see description - Book

The Vestdijk biography of Hans Visser from the library of Willem Frederik Hermans, with his pencil notes.

On Monday 16 August 1993, Willem Frederik Hermans purchased a second-hand copy of Hans Visser's biography of Vestdijk - which had been published six years earlier. On Sunday 22 August he finished the book. On 50 pages he added - with pencil, in the margins - corrections, question marks, sharp comments and one positive reaction (about the poem ‘De uiterste seconde’). What is also noticeable are Hermans' comments regarding Vestdijk's financial situation. Unique document: two of the greatest Dutch-language writers of the twentieth century united in one book.
