[II] The second text, byJohn Flanders, is in Dutch, illustrated with 4 original full page engravings, all signed by the artist ; and 7 ornamental letters. Extraordinary belgian bibliophile edition in the sphere of ''Magic Realism''. This is one of the very rare publications which contains two texts, different from each other, and different in language, but by the same author. Indeed Raymond Jean de Kremer (Gent 1887- Gent 1964) was a Flemish writer who felt himself equally at ease when writing French or Dutch. Initially he used the pseudonym Jean Ray for his French ; and John Flanders for his Dutch writings. He is generally considered to be the main precursor of Magic Realism in French Belgian and Flemish Dutch literature. The very fine engravings were pulled by the artist himself ; André Goezu, born (1939) and educated in Antwerp, of jewish descent. He moved to Paris in 1968 where he still lives. .
