Houbraken Translated


Postscript and printing errors in volume 2


Seeing that the following, or third volume is ready for the printing press, in which there will also be shown portraits of artist still alive before their biographies, for which we will use a way of writing that will meet with approval, it is therefore our request, especially of the oldest of my fellows in art, that they please send me information concerning their birth date, the place, the master with whom they studied art etc., and anything that is further deemed useful to know. And also if their portrait drawn in small size or painted be forwarded so that I may still arrange them in time in the order of their chronological place. And also that various artists who might feel inclined and pleased to see that their portrait fill an entire plate, so that they might give their friends a few impressions, declare themselves accordingly and discuss this with me orally or in writing.
