Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam holds a particularly rich collection of early Netherlandish drawings which run from the late Middle Ages to the period which is justly called the dawn of the Golden Age. Key names include Hieronymus Bosch, Lucas van Leyden, Pieter Bruegel, Hendrick Goltzius, Karel van Mander, Jacques de Gheyn, and Abraham Bloemaert.

This catalog is the result of a long-term research project into this unique collection. More than 400 pages have been cataloged in recent years, and a selection of 140 of the finest works is resented in full-page format and color in this book, together with explanatory texts including supporting illustrations.
