THE BREAD BAKER’S SAINT
& THE BAKER’S GUILD OF BRUSSELS


VAN VEEN, G. D.. Alsoo Myne Heeren die Wethouderen deser Stadt Brussele op den 16. Februarii 1719, aen die van het Broodt-maeckers Ambacht …. Brussels, Antonius Claudinot, 1719.

A fine pen-and-ink drawing and a very rare letterpress broadside, both relating to the baker’s trade in 18th-century Brussels. The drawing of a finial design – perhaps for a liturgical object or architectural element – depicts St. Honoratus of Amiens (d. c. 600), patron saint of bakers, atop an oven tended by bread makers. Included with the drawing is a 1719 broadside relating to the ordinances of the Baker’s Trade (Broodt-maeckers Ambacht) in Brussels.
