Between the beginning of 1614 and early May of the same year two issues of a book appeared at Haarlem containing the poems presented at a rhetoricians' contest held there the previous August. The first issue, entitled Nootwendich Vertoogh der alleen-suyverende Springh-Ader aller kinderen Gods, was published by David Wachtendonck and dedicated by him to the dignitaries of that city. Two variants exist of the second issue, entitled Der Reden-rijcken Springh-Ader, with the name of either Daniel de Keyser or Pieter Arentsz in the imprint. This new issue in the main retains Wachtendonck's dedication, although it is known that Pieter Arentsz also published a substitute dedication to the same dignitaries composed by the rhetoricians' chamber De Wijngaert-rancken which had organised the contest. The device of a fourth Haarlem publisher, i.e. Vincent Casteleyn, which occurs on the title-pages of the second issues serves to complicate matters further. The article attempts to disentangle this confusion by analysing the dedications and suggests that Casteleyn was the printer of the work in all its guises.
