Hendrik van Cronevelt
printer and next-door neighbor
February 25, 1663
January 29, 1708
Hendrik van Cronevelt lived next door to Leeuwenhoek on the northwest corner of the Hippolytusbuurt gracht and the Nieuwstraat. According to the STCN (Short Title Catalog Netherlands), Cronevelt:
- a resident of the Hypolitus-buurt, op den hoek van de Nieuwe-straet (Hypolitusbuurt, on the corner of the Nieuwestraat) from 1688-1697.
- a bookseller from 1688 through 1702.
- a printer from 1688-1698 and again in 1702
- the City's printer in 1702 and 1704.
The STCN has 25 titles printed by Cronevelt, including the ten on the list below by Leeuwenhoek and one, by Govert Bidloo, of his letter to Leeuwenhoek. The other fifteen include a travel book in 1700 and book of letters in 1703, which doesn't match the STCN's summary data. The only municipal title was printed in 1704, a book of statutes and ordinances.
Cronevelt had a prosperous printing business, including most of Leeuwenhoek's self-published letters. Specifically, between 1693 and 1702, he printed the third through seventh continuations of the letters as well as a new edition of the second continuation. He also re-printed Letters 32, 39, and 33 (in that order) in a booklet and Letter 41 by itself.
Cronevelt had died by the time Leeuwenhoek was ready in 1718 to publish his next collection, Send-Brieven, for which he used Adriaan Beman.
