Abstract:

After a short introduction on his life and writings, the author transcribes a selection of Eikelenberg's notes on varnish making. These refer to 17th century Dutch practice. The Eikelenberg manuscripts are preserved in the Municipal Archives of the North Netherlandish town of Alkmaar. (See IIC Abstract 1950).
