Chapter Summary

Pieter Blussé's commitment to the movement for economic recovery is reflected in an authoritative 24-volume series on trades and occupations published by the firm of Blussé. In 1787 it was his portrait that adorned the first page of the Blussés' new series on the chief figures in the Patriotic Movement. During the period of restoration of the House of Orange, Blussé published four non-political works by Paape. The ideas formulated in the scheme are characteristic of Pieter's political thinking and his unquenchable optimism during the early years of the Batavian Republic. The Batavian period seems at first glance to have little impact on the Blussés' list. Generally speaking, Pieter Blussé played it safe, with a list of publications that was in part timeless, the more expensive books, and in part geared to topical issues, usually cheaper editions or translations, works that had already proved themselves in other countries.
