'Frederik Willem van Eeden Pioneer in nature conservation' is not about who everyone thinks he is. Father and son of Eeden carried the same first names, but especially the son was known for his literary talent and especially the book Little John. Frederik Willem van Eeden senior used his talent to write about nature and landscape. He did this in a way that appealed to many people. It is partly thanks to his plea to preserve nature reserves as monuments that Jac. P. Thijsse inspired to establish the Vereniging Natuurmonumenten.
Frederik Willem van Eeden Pioneer in nature protection is a nice little ode to the botanist Van Eeden senior. This booklet ensures that he does not fall into oblivion.
Frederik Willem van Eeden Pioneer in nature conservation has appeared in the natural history Heimans & Thysse series.
Marga Coesèl is a biologist and guest researcher at the Artis Library of the University of Amsterdam. She is the author of numerous publications about the world of Heimans and Thysse, including a book about the Verkade albums.
