BABELIOWSKY, Paul, Dick BREEBAART et al. Het Feest dat Wiegel Wilde.

(Wageningen): De Uitbuyt, 1980. First edition. Folio. 72 pages. Fantastic photo-documentation of the riots that ensued during the coronation and inauguration of Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands. At the time there was great social unrest, the economic situation was difficult and there was a great housing shortage. The large squatter movement under the motto “no home, no coronation” planned to disrupt the proceedings to give attention to their cause. The day would culminate in a series of battles between police and demonstrators leaving over 100 rioters and 93 police officers injured. A very good copy in wrappers. Rare, OCLC locates a single copy at the Institute of Social History in Amsterdam.
