69 Vegetarians

Modern-day vegetarianism, which originated in the mid-nineteenth century, led to similarly divided views: to many socialists, this was a classic case of mistaken priorities. In 1894 in the Netherlands the present Nederlandse Vegetariërsbond was established. The Christian anarchist Felix Ortt (1866-1959) and the socialist Daniël de Clercq (1845-1931), who from 1897 edited the Vegetarische Bode, were leading figures in this association. The IISH holds the former lending library of the Vegetariërsbond.
