Chapter Summary

The Belgian Revolution of 1830, which marked the beginning of the country’s independence, was initially felt as a disruption in the private and public care of ancient books and manuscripts. Soon afterwards, however, book-collecting resumed in circles of (mainly Flemish) antiquarians and bibliophiles, whose interests were increasingly recognized as providing the fledgeling state with the literary and cultural ancestry needed to legitimise its independent existence. Soon, private initiatives were to shade increasingly into the formation of public (state-sponsored) initiatives and shifted fom the local (municipal) to the national level.
