This week saw the publication of the trade edition of the PhD-thesis of our co-editor of Delineavit et Sculpsit Joyce Zelen, Jacoba Lugt-Klever Research Fellow at the RKD in The Hague and the Fondation Custodia in Paris. Her book Blinded by Curiosity. The Collector-Dealer Hadriaan Beverland (1650-1716) and his Radical Approach to the Printed Image explores a phenomenon in the history of print collecting that has never been extensively investigated: the cutting and pasting of prints in the Early Modern period, focusing on the colourful Dutch classical scholar and libertine Hadriaan Beverland (1650-1716).
