Footnotes

  • A FINE CONTEMPORARY DUTCH BINDING FITTED WITH FINE GOLD CATCHES AND CLASPS. The boekbeslag ('book mounts') seem to bear either the 1790 flower mark of an as yet unidentified Amsterdam silversmith (see K.A. Citroen, Amsterdam Silversmiths and their Marks, 1973, page 213, number 1111), or possibly the flaming heart mark of Johannes Michiel Lagaman (1763-1809), known as a maker of clasps mainly for purses (op. cit., page 190, number 981/982). See illustration on preceding page.
