On offer is the fascinating, original 1849 through 1850s journal and letter copy book of the renowned Dutch instrument maker Julius Theodoor Leopold Hoefftcke. Born on 12 March 1800 in Berlin he moved to Leiden at age 26 and within two years he was appointed as the instrument maker of Leiden University. He supplied the academic world with instruments until his death in 1875. After which his grandson took over the company and moved to England. The book is a superb source for researchers and historians as a rare insight into the world of Dutch instrument making which was a growth industry and for which the Dutch were ferociously proud. This book contains all the financial agreements of Mr. Hoefftcke around 1850s to 1860s. For every individual borrowing the instruments or goods he noted how much should have been paid, when it had to be paid and once paid he confirmed it in his book. From his letters one could conclude that he did not only loan out his goods, but also sold them. The book shows that the financial agreements do not only limit themselves to the University of Leiden and in fact his instruments were shipped long distances. We note a letter shows that instruments were sent to J. Pohl, who was an instrument maker located in the Hague since 1820. Besides the financial agreements, there are also some formal letters to the clients and suppliers. Based on the letters one could say that some, or perhaps all of the letters, were just a written copy of an original letters. Many letters point out the author was German born as narrative is peppered with 'mit' and 'und' but most of this material dates about 25 years after he moved to the Netherlands, so his Dutch is excellent and definitely understandable. The book proper is somewhat shaken but otherwise G.
