Hieronymus Bosch : The Complete Paintings and Drawings
(Hieronymus Bosch, Paul Vandenbroeck, Bernard Vermet, jos Koldeweij

Koldeweij and his coauthors cite all that isn't known about the enigmatic Bosch, including his birth date, dates for his paintings, or proof that all works attributed to him are actually his.
