It was established very quickly that the quality of the bibliographical work submitted was a testament to the vibrancy of the field of bibliographical research!”

Daniel de Simone, prev. Folger Library and Library of Congress & Member of the 2018 Prize Jury

"​The author has spent decades working on this book compiling an incredible census of illustrations used in editions printed in the 15th Century Netherlands. We cannot compare Ina Kok’s book to any other publication submitted for the 2018 Prize. This work, published in four volumes and​ based on the study of almost four thousand illustrations, is remarkable!”

Fabrizio Govi, ILAB Vice President & Breslauer Prize Secretary
