AGTERBERG, M., De Bodebus in Gelderland, Utrecht en Overijssel. Inventarisatie van Bodebussen van Gemeenten, Waterschappen en Ambachtsgilden in...
[Schipluiden, 1983 Large 8°, lettered wraps., 79pp., numerous text-ills. with extensive descriptions, full-p. sketch-map,
The dutch word "bus" has been derived from the greek word "pyxis". The history of the "Bodebus", a cylinder (a "bus") fixed to the girdle of an official courier ("Bode") dates back from early dutch medieval times. They contained official messages from dutch state-administration, the so-called "States-general", and lower forms of administrative offices as provincial-municipal and village councils. As such a courier was easily recognized by common civilians. In the course of time these cylinders developed from simple appearance and material to more and very elaborate pieces, mainly executed in silver, especially during the 17th-19th century when wealth had risen to a very high level in the Netherlands. In modern times they only serve as insignia for official occasions. This lavisly illustrated essay describes, in detail, the origins, history and development of these paraphernalia, as found in the dutch provinces of Gelderland, Utrecht and Overijssel. A good to very good copy. (some light occas. scuffing to extremities of wraps.).
