8 Bossenbroek, Martin. Holland op Zijn Breedst. indie en Zui-Afrika in de Nederlandse Cultuur Omstreeks 1900.
Amsterdam: Uitgeverij Bert Bakker, 1996. 
Octavo, softbound (slick blue illus. covers), 443 pp. Fine (As New). From lower cover: Anders dan tot nu toe werd aangenomen, was ook de Nederlandse samenleving omstreeks 1900 ontvankelijk voor de prikkels van nationalisme en imperialisme. Temidden van het opgewonden vlagvertoon van expansieve Europese naties zwaaide Nederland naar vermogen mee met het rood-witblauw. Ook hier te lande werd de symbolentaal van volk, vorst(in) en vanderland begrepen en gesproken. Holland op zijn smalst had afgedaan, tegen het einde van de negentiende eeuw maakte Holland zich breed. Het nieuwe nationale zelfbewustzijn werd vooral ontleend aan de eigen verrichtingen in de Indische archipel en aan die van het stamverwante Boerenvolk in Zuid-Afrika. In Holland op zijn breedst wordt de betekenis van Indie en Zuid-Afrika voor de Nederlandse cultuur rond de eeuwwisseling in al haar facetten in kaart gebracht.

12 Bragdon, Claude. Merely Players.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, MCMXXIX. First Edition. 
Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xv, 215 pp. Near-Fine, in a Very Good dust jacket with edgewear. From jacket: This book deals mainly with people, some comparatively unknown, other famous, whom the author has encountered in the course of his long and interesting life. Among them are such figures as Harvey Ellis, Louis Sullivan, Francis Grierson, Willard Straight, George Russell, Kahlil Gibran, and Adelaide Crapsey. The theatre and its personalities, subjects with which the author is most familiar, are also discussed. Different both in its content and in the amusing, intimate manner of its treatment from anything which Claude Bragdon has written before, Merely Players shares with his former works the mystical point of view and philosophical detachment which his readers have come to expect and will not disappoint those who look to him for esoteric knowledge and spiritual light.
