Christiaan Huygens 'under construction'

Exemplar olim Const. Hugenii. (Bibliotheca Meermanniana.1824, p.308)


Books from the library of Constantijn Huygens (1596-1687)

Books owned by Constantijn Huygens can be recognized by his motto / ex-libris marking "Constanter" on the title page. The smaller part of his library, that in total counted approximately 8.000 books, was sold in the 1688 auction after he had died. The remainder of his library was distributed among his eldest sons and parts of it were sold in the 1695 auction soon after Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) had died and in the 1701 auction some years after the death of Constantijn Huygens jr. (1628-1697).
Book ownership combined with a date of acquisition can provide some insight in the development of the library over time. The notes added by Constantijn Huygens to the ex-libris also clarify whether a book was received as a gift or was purchased.
Between 1.500 and 2.000 of Constantijn Huygens' books also became part of the library of Christiaan Huygens. This should caution anyone to draw rash conclusions based solely on the sale catalogue of Christiaan Huygens' library. As is already suggested by others, combining the three library sale catalogues may provide a better insight into the Bibliotheca Zuylichemiana

Since 2009 about 50 titles have been added to the Constanter collection that was started by Dr Ad Leerintveld, (retired curator Royal Library, Den Haag) which would have brought the total near to 200 but for a change in 'counting'. It appeared that multi-title volumes (convolutes) had been treated inconsistently. Convolutes of which only the first title bears a Constanter ex-libris are each assigned one number with an additional lowercase letter (a..z) to indicate the different titles within a convolute. This results in a new total of (68 old + new) Constanter entries. Small changes haven been implemented in the presentation, but the overal 'look and feel' has been preserved. Additions after Leerintveld (1998) have a number starting with N. Several issues have still to be decided upon: In the wake of the increasing amount of 'Constanters' new information on books of Huygens' father and of his sons is retrieved.
Hunting for "Constanter"-s is not a one-man job and they were discovered by both specialists and amateurs. Any lead to or information about a book containing the Constanter ex-libris is highly appreciated.
To better convey the latest developments of this page a color coding scheme was adopted, that is explained in the following table.
An item that is stable and has not recently undergone an update.
An item that was recently added.
An item that was recently updated. This may involve adding an image or a substantial addition or correction of information.
An item that was formerly considered a Constanter, but at the moment is under investigation. This will eventually result in either its removal or reinstatement.
