Two hundred years have passed since the founding of the Leiden Print Room, an image archive that is now part of the Leiden University Libraries. This wide-ranging volume celebrates the archive’s long and rich history by presenting a complete survey of the Leiden collections, from rare drawings dated to the early sixteenth century to some of the most recent acquisitions. Among the artists represented are Jan Gossart, Barend van Orley, Carel Visser, and Emo Verkerk. Beautifully illustrated, this will be the standard reference on the Leiden Print Room for years to come.
