Third edition of Goerees revision of Ter Brugges popular treatise on painting and colouring with watercolours. Most of the book is based on the treatise by the otherwise unknown Geerard ter Brugge or Gerard ter Brugghen (described as a an outstanding master of the colourists sart) sometimes thought to be a pseudonym for Marcus Gheeraerts the elder or younger), originally published as Verlichtery kunst-boeck in 1616, which went through further editions in 1634 and 1667. The Middelburg publisher Willem Goeree revised and expanded Ter Brugges treatise and published it under Ter Brugges name in 1668, further revising it for his second edition, still under Ter Brugges name in 1670 and again for the present third published by Van den Dalen in 1697. Goeree also integrated most of the contents into his own Het nieuw toneel der konsten (first edition 1679), published under the pseudonym Simon Witgeest.

Binding very slightly worn at the extremities, two black stains on pages 14-15, bleeding through to pp. 13 and 16. Otherwise in good condition. STCN (6 copies) cf. Goedings, Afsetters en meester-afsetters, p. 25.
