with 62 professors and lecturers, and is attended by about 600 stud-

440,000 vol.), in the Bibliotheek-Gang, between the Poststraat and
the Zwanen-Straat, is a copy of the New Testament of Erasmus
with marginal annotations by Luther (open on week-days, 10-4;

Opposite the university stands the Roman Catholic Broerkerk
(P1.B, 3), a Gothic structure by P. J. H. Cuypers, adorned with large
pictures of the Passion by L. Hendrix (1865). — The corner- house
of a street in the vicinity, called the ‘Oude Kyk-in’t-Jat Straat’
(P1. B, 3), bears the head of a bearded man, with the inscription
‘Tek kick noch in’t’ (‘I still peep into it). This has been the badge
of the city since the 16th century.
In the Guyot-Plein (P1.B, 3) is a small monument commemorat-
ing H. D. Guyot (d. 1828), founder in 1790 of the Deaf and Dumb
Asylum, which rises at the N.W. corner of the square. — To the N.
is the Nieuwe or Noorder Kerk (P1. B, 2), built in 1660-64 on the

To the S.W. of the Groote Markt, beyond the Visch-Markt, is
the Corn Exchange (Korenbeurs; Pl. 8, B, 4), behind which is the
Gothic Aa-Kerk, founded in the 18th cent., but rebuilt after 1500
and furnished with a baroque tower in 1712.
