Very good copies of these two famous series of two famous Dutch costume books, seldomly found bound together.
The first representing the most extensive costume book of the Netherlands, including detailed views of coifs, accesories and jewelry going with the national costume, and the second representing the most famous series of Dutch national folkloristic games and ceremonies.
The binding shows some signs of wear, some very slight occasional spotting. The lithographs remain fine and clear. Ad 2 lacks a title-page. Otherwise in very good condition. Landwehr, Col. Pl., 242 and 243; Colas 333 and 334; NUC lists the first part only.
