67/2800 [Bindings. VOC]. Longgrained brown morocco binding richly decorated with silver VOC binding ornaments: silver clasps and catches, silver plate on frontcover and backcover, silver stylus (to be stuck through the four silver catches), the clasps finely decorated with crowned "VOCE" [= VOC Enkhuizen] monogram and finely decorated with an East Indiaman flying the VOC flag, 8vo. - ON: a notebook with early 20th cent. paper and annots. in pen and ink.

- Board edges and spine rubbed; upper joint splitting near spine-ends. Otherwise fine.

= A very rare binding with silver VOC decorations with the monogram of the Enkhuizen chamber, with a stylus functioning as catch as well as pen. The silver catches bear the silver hallmark showing the coat of arms of Amsterdam and a year mark Y (1783) and an unidentified silversmith mark, but appears to be the symbol Sigma. Cf. Landwehr, VOC p.XXVII and XXIX (with illustration, [w. almost identical decorations]): "Few VOC stamped bindings bearing the initials of the less important chambers, such as Delft and Rotterdam, have come to light. (...) Actually the two chambers jointly commissioned notebooks and/ or almanacs on a yearly basis from the same silversmith. Elegantly bound in sealskin, they were provided with a silverplate of an East Indiaman surrounded by scrollwork on the front and backcovers (...). Unfortunately, no specimens from the other chambers have been found". The paper bookblock is late 19th/ early 20th century (watermark H.P. Charro & zonen) and with early 20th century annotations. Perhaps the silver decorations were re-used on a later binding. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CLIII.

= Salman, Populair drukwerk in de Gouden Eeuw p.289: "Voor Brabant zijn aanwijzingen van almanakproductie gevonden in de steden Breda en 's-Hertogenbosch. Uit de eerste stad kennen we slechts de Bredaesche almanach en chronijck uit 1664, vrijwel zeker uitgegeven door Johannes Evermans in Breda. Het is zeker geen doorsnee almanak, maar een zeer kostbaar drukwerk in quarto, geïllustreerd met kopergravures. Het ging hier om een eenmalige uitgave die was opgedragen aan Willem III, prins van Oranje en heer van Breda. De schrijver ervan, Jan van Vliet (Janus Vlitius, 1622-1666), verschool zich achter de naam Fobbe Korst." And in the note: "Er zijn tien exemplaren van deze almanak voor 1664 bewaard gebleven." Nice copy of this rare almanac, containing some contemp. annotations in pen and brown ink: indications of the Sundays of 1665 and of the Fridays of the same year, marked w. "D" and "B" in the blank margins of the calendar, and of some special occasions such as "vastelavont", "P:sondag" seven days prior to "Paes", and "pincxteren". Following the Chronijck, on the last page of this almanac, is a list of about 60 Frisian proverbs, annouced by the bearded vendor on the first title.
