The autobiographical book by Hermans, which is now very much in demand
"Waarom Schrijven".

An initially limited edition printed as a New Year's gift published as paperback with dust jacket. A book which saw the light of day with some trial and error.

For example, the whole first edition was destroyed because of a printer's error, even though in line two "Pianio" Hermans therefore had the entire first edition and trade edition destroyed.
The edited limited second edition a month later as well as this third found their way eagerly and are now very rare in this
unread new condition!

This is from the third edition "possibly" signed by Hermans and
no. 48 and 50.

Attached is the letter from Mr Welsing
the curator of the literary museum who sent me this answer to my question about the authenticity of Herman's initials signing this book.


Aan Het bibliografische universum van Willem Frederik Hermans, samengesteld door Frans A. Janssen en Sonja van Stek (2000), p. 194-195 ontleen ik de volgende gegevens:
de eerste druk van Waarom schrijven is verschenen in januari 1984, in een oplage van 250 exemplaren, als jaarwisselingsgeschenk van Uitgeverij De Harmonie
de tweede druk is verschenen in maart 1984, in een oplage van 5000 exemplaren. ‘Wegens drukfouten is een “eerdere 2e druk” niet in de handel gebracht; in de daarop in de handel gekomen 2e druk zijn de fouten gecorrigeerd’
de derde druk is verschenen in juni 1984, in een oplage van 5150 exemplaren

Ik durf niet met 100% zekerheid te zeggen dat het signatuur van Hermans is,
maar het is wel hoogstwaarschijnlijk. Gezien de oplage van de derde druk (5150) exemplaren, lijkt het voor de hand te liggen dat er vijftig stuks genummerd en gesigneerd zijn. Over een signeersessie is mij echter niets bekend.
Ik hoop hiermee uw vragen afdoende beantwoord te hebben.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Dick Welsink
