In the first part, successively: a poem about the ‘Starrenhemel’ (dedicated to Bilderdijk's sister-in-law Elter-Woesthoven), ‘een vijftal Navolgingen van Ossian, welke het voorrecht hebben van ‘naar het oorspronklijk’ (probably made available by Henry II Fix from Zwolle) ‘zelf bewerkt te zijn (en) Macphersons Engelsche Uitgave niet dom aan te kleven’ and loose poems of diverse nature, ‘het door mij altoos geliefkoosde vak der Erotiques niet vergetende’.

In the historical novel ‘Fameuze dames’ (2017) Cato van Aa describes how these poems ended up with publisher Catharina Dóll Egges. Via a trip to London and an affair with Bilderdijk. The handsome poet also had an adventure with Katharina Wilhelmina Schweickhart. He writes about this in this collection.
