KOMRIJ, Gerrit
The Ultimate Collection! The complete output of Gerrit Komrij as a writer - well, 99% - and more.
Gerrit Komrij (1944-2012) was one of the most versatile authors of the Dutch twentieth century. He was a poet, novelist, playwright, translator, book reviewer, television critic, gay rights activist and a passionate polemist. Aside from his prolific output of books and contributions to books and magazines, Komrij was responsible for a gargantuan harvest of bibliophile works in a bewildering variety. This collection was amassed more or less under the radar, over a period of four decades. Twenty-five crates full with books, manuscripts, letters, posters, photos, curios, serials, clippings and documentation, our collection counts more than a thousand separate items, from the humble sixth and seventh printings to great rarities in richly gilt full vellum, enriched with artists works. From an original wax crayon drawing by 15-year old Gerrit Komrij in 1959, to the silver fountain pen with which he wrote everything between 1972 and 1977. From his self-published 1963 debut Dekonstruktie in vier delen to the cheerful Literaire Loodgieters masquerade publication Per boot van Venetië naar Padua (issued in only 12 copies), in two variants: one regular and one archive copy. Spectacular artists bookbindings: De Phoenix spreekt in full vellum with a large sun design in gold over the entire binding, one of three copies of Mijn minnaars in limp vellum, and Peper en zout in full leather with brass inlay. Tiny print runs? Badkamer, Fax aan Agaath, In liefde bloeyende, Ik ben een bijl, Pseudo-Ambrosia. Handwritten poems issued with original art by Hans Broekhuijsen and Herman Gordijn.
