* The only translation into Dutch of this curious fantasy novel, first published in 1919. Jacket with a long text: an extensive, high-and-mighty tongue-in-cheek description. Fine binding design by Johan Briedé: a frog on the Holy Cross. The printer's mark, a busy dung beetle (!) was designed by Briedé, too. Exact translation of the title: "Jurgen. A History of Justice. Translation by J.A. Sandfort". Very rare!
