De Standaard, no. 1, April 1, 1872.
[Rijswijk, Ver. Grafische Industrie Levisson MPS 1972.]

Offprint (45x60cm.) of the first issue of De Standaard. It was reprinted in facsimile together with four other historical issues of De Standaard on the occasion of the exposition about the newspaper held in the exposition hall, the Exposorium, of Uilenstede (the student housing complex of the Vrije Universiteit) from April 1 to May 27, 1972.

The other four issues reprinted in this series were from April 3, 1903 (about the railway strike), November 9, 1920 (about Kuyper’s death), May 15, 1940 (about Colijn’s disappointment about the departure of the Dutch government for England), and December 15, 1944 (the final issue of De Standaard as a daily paper). These five issues could be ordered for ƒ4.50.

The first issue of De Standaard had already been reproduced in miniature (16x12cm., on high-quality paper) in connection with its fiftieth anniversary in 1922 and to advertise for the paper. From the text added to similar reproductions of De Standaard, it appears that such mini-editions were also printed and distributed during the yearly convocations of the Federation of Young Men’s Associations on Reformed Principles as a way of gaining more subscribers from among the attendees.
