Nieuwmarkt Dagblad 1-4, 6-21

Amsterdam: Aktiegroep Nieuwmarkt, 1975. Issues 1-4 folio (13 1/2 x 8 1/4"), printed with spot color on white paper and crimp-bound along left margin; 6-14 folded sheets, printed on newsprint or yellow paper. Nos. 19-20 are 4to, stapled once at upper left hand corner. No. 21 is a 4to, printed on newsprint, with unbound, folded sheets. No. 19 has a portion of the page cut out, bearing a text by Simon Vinkenoog; this clipping is laid in, and housed in a handmade black folder which includes a news photo of a Kabouter house pasted onto inside panel. All texts in Dutch.

A nearly complete run of this rare underground periodical which bracketed the Neiuwmarkt Riots [Nieuwmarktrellen], lacking only the 5th number. The riots protested the forced condemnation and eviction of buildings to construct the Eastern Metro, hence the striking drawing of a death's head train driving out of the cover of the first issue. On 24 March 1975, later known as Blue Monday, extensive riots broke out with police to protest the demolitions. While the demolitions continued, future plans for other metro lines were abandoned.

The pages of Nieuwmarkt Dagblad capture the blow by blow intensity of those days, with striking artwork, cartoons, and photographs of the riots.

Very good with scattered creasing and toning, and the aforementioned clipping laid in. Item #28680

Price: $450.00
