Notes: A war-time production by the Dutch Resistance movement; the quality and nature of the production pleased the artist greatly, but found less favour with Christopher Sandford of the Golden Cockerel Press from whose 1938 edition the images had been pirated. The translation of the quatrains into Dutch was done pseudonymously by H.W.J.M. Keuls.
