Example text

192 AMSTERDAM - EARLlEST NEWSPAPER CENTRE Arnhem In the collection of early Dutch news-sheets in Kungliga Biblioteket there are eleven corantos from the years 1621-1636 which have no name. At the top of the recto side they have only a serial number (with one exception) and the year when issued, the latter being printed in Roman numerals. In the imprint on the verso side there is neither to be found the name of the town where the coranto was issued nor the name of the printer or publisher. That they all belong together and form part of a coranto series which was published in some Dutch town during the years 16211636iscertain-over and above easily recognizable typographical characteristics - because of the special way the date of issue was printed.

A few of these extras are in the collection at Kungliga Biblioteket; but, on the other hand, there is not a single one published by Broer Jansz. According to Emm. de Born 1, there are, in the previously mentioned collection in the Royal Library at the Hague (see p. 9), several extra numbers of Broer Jansz's coranto. All of these were, however, printed only on one side of the paper, while Hilten's were printed on both sides. Although, with the aid of the numbers on hand, it is possible to form a rather concrete idea about the standards which were followed in the set up of these corantos, it is nearly impossible to find anything about the organization whichlay behind them.

As, however, this number is now to be seen in the Press Museum at Amsterdam it is easy to prove that Van der Meulen's statement is wrong, and that, similar to thecorantos in the Stockholm collection, it has no name. A comparison between the typographical characteristics of the copy at Amsterdam, which contains information about the place of publication and the printer, and the eleven copies in Kungliga Biblioteket proves that they all belong to the same coranto series 3.
