Collection of poems by Jacoba Petronella Winckelman (Vlissingen 1696 - Middelburg 1761), who came from a very religious family and lived a reformed, pious life. By attending conventicles during which she shared religious ideas, she developed her literary talent. Jacoba Petronella died in 1761 at the age of 64, and most of her works were published after her death. In 1763, her niece Maria Elizabeth Winckelman published a first collection of poems, named 'Stichtelyke gedichten', in which she added an introductional biography of her aunt's life. A year later, this collection followed. It also includes a foreword by Maria Elizabeth, in which she explains that this book includes poems of the same nature as the previous publication, meaning devotional poetry aimed at bettering humanity. It also features blessings and mourning poems because these were believed to serve the same purpose. In 1769, these two volumes were republished as a bundle. L3908
