The relationship between Dutch and German philology as well as between Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and the scientific institutions in the Low Countries have scarcely been a subject of research during the last few decades. However, the correspondence – known and recently found letters – between Jacob Grimm and the Dutch Institute of Science, Literature and the Fine Arts (the predecessor of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Science) shows that they held each other in great esteem. Especially the correspondence between Wil,,lem Bilderdijk as the former secretary and Jacob Grimm was very friendly. Besides, because of his efforts for Dutch literature and language, Jacob Grimm even became the first foreign scholar the Institute appointed as an associate member in 1816. The article is intended as a step towards more research on the relationship between the two neighboring philologies in the nineteenth century.
