About this book

Language: Dutch

Without Jac. P. Thijsse (1865 – 1945) the Netherlands would have been a different country. A country without organisations such as Natuurmonumenten (the Dutch equivalent of Natural England) or the Vogelbescherming (the Dutch equivalent of the RSPB), a country without the Verkade albums (a series of books in which to glue collectible pictures that were distributed for free with Verkade confectionery, available between 1903-1940, which became a national treasure – Thijsse wrote the text for these albums), and a country without the Flora, an illustrated flora to the Netherlands to which Thijsse contributed. Without Thijsse, the Netherlands would have been a country with less nature and, worse, less desire for an unspoiled landscape. The Naardermeer and other famous natural areas, wooded banks, bird-friendly pastures, meandering streams, and even the Amsterdamse Bos (or Amsterdam Forest, a landscape park in the municipalities of Amstelveen and Amsterdam) – the Netherlands owes all these things to Thijsse, who was a founder of nature conservation in this country.

Jac. P. Thijsse: Natuurbeschermer en Schrijver is a penetrating portrait of an affable but unyielding nature propogandist, a naturalist without equal, and a gifted writer.

Summary in Dutch:
Natuurmonumenten, Vogelbescherming, de Verkade-Albums, de Flora: zonder Jac. P. Thijsse (1865 – 1945) was Nederland een ander land geweest. Een land met minder natuur en, nog erger, minder liefde voor het onbedorven landschap. Het Naardermeer en andere beroemde natuurgebieden, houtwallen, vogelvriendelijke weilanden, kronkelende beken en zelfs het Amsterdamse Bos danken we aan Thijsse, de grondlegger van de natuurbescherming in de Lage Landen.

Jac. P. Thijsse: Natuurbeschermer en Schrijver is een indringend portret van een minzame maar onverzettelijke natuurpropagandist, een natuurkenner zonder weerga én een begenadigd schrijver.
