Philippine Wijsman, 1837–1908 (English)

WijsmanPhilippine Wijsman is an example of an active translator who, over time, fell into obscurity. The year of her death could not be found in Dutch reference material but was indeed included in the short entry on Wijsman found in the Nordisk familjebok, a Swedish encyclopaedia. From this excerpt and on the basis of what Meyboom, among others, wrote about Wijsman, further research has been conducted and more details about her life and work were able to be gathered.
