About this Item

3 volumes. Engraved frontispiece portrait of William of Orange to Volume 1. 8vo, later deep burgundy textured cloth, spines lettered in gilt. ix,579; 582; 664, ads. A fine set. Motley, historian and diplomat , was part of a prominent literary circle that included Holmes, Emerson, Hawthorne and Longfellow. After several attempts to succeed in the diplomatic service he reached his true calling as an historian. His specialty became Dutch history and his work was often approached through the many historical juxtapositions of Holland and the United States. This, his most prominent work was first published in 1856 and met with an overwhelmingly positive response. According to DAB ; "The reasons for this acclaim and the lasting repute of the work are obvious. It is a picturesque, dramatic narrative of a striking series of events, gathering around a group of clearly marked personalities and is suffused with the warm glow of love of political and religious liberty.".
