Things you find on a flea market, season 3, episode 10. That's a first doodle I have in my collection. And what a doddle! I love it! The book is the second volume of Napoléon en exil à Sainte-Hélène by Barry Edward O'Meara printed in 1822.
Among other exciting things, I found in the last volume of the Dutch Printers Yearbook from 1911, was an article by Reinier Willem Petrus de Vries Jr. about a technique that "recently" attracted the attention of some bookbinders — starch marbling.
The book is another find at the book market in the Hague. The Life of Willem III (Het Leven van Willem III) by Frans Bührmann was published in Amsterdam in 1874. But I'm not sure whether the endpapers come from the same time.
