Mulisch, Harry, De Ontdekking van de Hemel. Amsterdam 1992. Dummy with 29 pages of text.
Dummy with different dust jacket that was not used in the later publication.
What makes this edition even more interesting is the different titles of the individual chapters. Mulisch was also not yet sure of the number of chapters and the titles of the final chapters. See pictures.
Mulisch first supplied material for the production of this dummy in November 1991. He mentions this in the later published log of the realisation of “De ontdekking van de hemel” that was published in 2012. Cf. Logboek, pp. 121 and 122. On Wednesday 8 April 1992 Mulisch wrote in this log:
“Naar de BB gewandeld; voorgesteld, de donkerblauwe ondergrond van het stofomslag van de OvdH te vervangen door een warm oranjerood”.
Mulisch thus decided that yet another collector's item could be added to the list.
The book is in exceptionally good condition.
