Aristocratic 18th-century Dutch writer, with the pen name Zélide. Courted by James Boswell when he studied law in Utrecht. Rediscovered in the 20th century by Geoffrey Scott in his terrific book "The Portrait of Zélide." Her correspondence with Boswell is hilarious, often unintentionally so (on his part). Put her on your bumper, and Zélide will see our own century through gimlet eyes.
