Thank you for your kind email. We are a little sad too, but we now want to
devote all our time to the 'Bibliotheca Thurkowiana Minor'. The good news is
that 'The Catharijne Press' has been taken over by Mrs. Trijnie Duut & Mr.
Gerjan Heij. I persuaded them to join the MBS a.s.a.p. and so they did; they

6881 GA Velp,
tel: (+31) (0)26 - 3273125
fax: (+31) (0)26 - 3273126
Promising young people, trust they will make a success out of it.
No secrets at all, its all settled now.
Luce and I will of course stay members of the MBS, now only as collectors.

information. You have the addres. The book is titled 'Bibliotheca
Wittockiana' and is part of the Musea Nostra series (no.38). Year of
