"Door de Staten van Holland 25 Juni 1678 verboden als "prophaen, Atheistisch ende blasphemant". (...) nog 83 jaar na het uitgeven van het boek werd den boekverkooper deze zware boete [fl. 300,-] opgelegd." (Knuttel). "In the same year in which Spinoza's Opera posthuma appeared, Jan Rieuwertsz also published a Dutch translation of the same work, done by Jan Hendriksz. Glasemaker. This carefully-prepared edition includes a version of the Ethica based on a manuscript which represents an earlier stage of the work than that used for the Opera posthuma. This Dutch translation was intended to make Spinoza's philosophy accessible to a broader public. Because of this accessibility, the translated work was forbidden on June 25, 1678." (Hertzberger, cat. Wolf Collection). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CLXII.
