In the context of the project "The International Reception of Women's Writing", book selling has not been included. Yet it is clear that evidence is to be found here, as can be illustrated by refering to books and articles by Jeroen Blaak, Han Brouwer and Bert van Selm, who mention works by women having been bought. Numbers are very small, however, and here is more of an invitation to go on....

In some individual cases relevant mentions are to be found in the periodical press or in private correspondence: Isabelle de Charrière, for example, wrote about some of her novels possibly being sold by her own former bookseller in Utrecht.
