Abstract

The Giesens were a prominent musical family in Dunedin. Amsterdam-born Johannes Giesen came to New Zealand in 1958, after working as a concert pianist and newspaper editor in Indonesia. He taught music, as well as art and French, at Otago Boys’ High School. Joan Giesen remains a mystery, but her very stylized bookplate in this Dutch language copy of Ovid’s Amores hints that she was also musical.
