VALERIUS, A. Neder-landsche Gedenck-clanck. (, 1940-43). Ms. transcript of the first and only edition which was published in 1626. (2), xi, (1), 536, (4) pp. W. 9 tipped-in drawings (pen and ink and grey wash on thin paper). 8°-obl. Cont. cf. (Top of upper outer hinge a bit dam.).

Transcript made during World War II of the first edition of Valerius's patriotic songbook containing songs from the Dutch Revolt. From the colophon: "In het rampjaar 1940 op 12 juni ben ik begonnen dit boek uit het originele exemplaar der Universiteits-bibliotheek te Amsterdam over te schrijven, (…)". Most likely copied by Hedda Schoonderbeek-von Kaulbach (1900-1992) which can be deducted from the fact that the manuscript bears a dedication to Kees Otten, signed 'Hedda', dated 31 August 1987. Hedda and Kees were acquainted. Hedda was also a sister of Quappi Beckmann, wife of the painter Max Beckmann.
