Please note:

Links open in a new window. To view the files, you need Abobe reader.

Because of the large size of the files you may encounter problems opening the volumes.

To get better access to the files you can save the complete volumes on your computer by clicking on the links with your right mouse button and choose “Save target as”.

This way you are not using your temporary internet memory, which causes the problems.

Terms of use

The RKD has acquired these digital files from the publishers (Springer), to present them on the Rembrandt Database website. All rights remain with the publishers. No part of the publications may be reproduced elsewhere, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form or by any means, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without the prior written permission of the publishers.

Future developments

Presently, the volumes are presented here with basic functionality and – out of necessity – a somewhat limited quality of images to make the files light enough to present them through the standard Adobe viewer. In due time, the files will be offered through a more sophisticated viewer, with additional functionality (clickable contents page, etc.). Thank you for your understanding and patience!
