Item description for Meer dan een Mode-Koorts': Guido Gezelle en zijn postume Uitgever Lambertus Jacobus Veen, 1901-1919 (Antwerpse Studies over Nederlandse Literatuurgeschiedenis) by J. Pauwels...
Today, Guido Gezelle (1830-1899) is one of the best known writers in Dutch, but that was not the case during his lifetime. Then, his literary works were only known on a regional level. In 1901, his Laatste Verzen (Last Verses) and Verzen (Verses) were released by the Amsterdam publisher Lambertus Jacobus Veen (1863-1919). The collections were immediately sold out and quickly reprinted as selections, gift booklets and special editions. Dozens of editions were published annually, for the most part in the Netherlands, but not in Flanders. The public reacted enthusiastically, but there were many critical literary voices: This was just a temporary fad! A bibliographic description of the posthumous editions and the study of the publisher's archive shed new light on this strange episode in Dutch literary and publishing history.
