Kermis-Tafreeltjes, in Geetste Kunstplaatjes, op Boert-en Ernstige Dichttrant Beschreven.

(Bendorp, Karel Frederik the Elder) (illus.)

Dordrecht: A. Blusse & Zoon, (c. 1794). 24mo. 24pp., + 8 plates. The engraved plates depict the marvels of a fair and the street performances therein, including dancing, singing, and a magician, all hand-colored. Particular highlights include a hurdy-gurdy man and a magic lantern show featuring a naval battle. The illustrations originally appeared with poems by Roelof Arends, under the title Vaderlandsche Kermisvreugd in 1782. Here, however, the poems are unattributed, and have changed from Arends’s moralistic and aristocratic tone to a voice more keen on enjoyment and democracy. Bound in marbled paper wrappers, lightly rubbed, else fine. Only one copy listed in OCLC. Item #28582
