definitely Dutch, but old-school Dutch (so close to Afrikaans). It looks a lot like a study book like we had in high school, where you interpret old-style poems and verses etc. So called Dutch Literature study book.

Another traders says it is :- Afrikaans (South African). I there. I am a native Afrikaans speaker, and this book is in Dutch. For instance, if it was in Afrikaans, it would have been "letterkundige" (with an 'e') and not 'letterkundig'. You would also not use the word 'leesboek' in the context of 'letterkundige' in Afrikaans, but 'werk', i.e. 'letterkundige werk'. (Again, note the 'e'). The word 'leesboek' is also Dutch. You do not go to the library to take out 'leesboeke', but 'boeke', in Afrikaans.

From another helpful trader. I'd say it is a Dutch literature book. Definitely not about learning letters. (another suggestion??).

As per photo, this auction for 2 books, they are not the same book.

Both hardbacks are in reasonable to good condition. Printed circa 1932, 14cms x 21cms tall

MY BOOK QUALITY DESCRIPTIONS .. BRAND NEW ... Never been read. EXCELLENT ... Nearly "As New" with mention of specific faults. VERY GOOD .. May have some defects with the cover or some writings inside. GOOD ... readable but may have browning, sunning, and rust spots. REASONABLE ... A readable book with maybe light damage to spine and cover, EX LIBRARY .. What you see is what you get, with description of faults. At the end of the day, please feel free to ASK about the condition of the book. What may suit a reader may not suit a collector.
