Description:

Johan de Witt was one of Europe's greatest statesmen of the 17th century: Appointed the "councillor pensionary" (i.e., the political leader) of Holland (1653?72), he successfully led the United Provinces in the First and Second Anglo-Dutch wars (1652?54, 1665?67) while at the same time effectively consolidating the country's position as a formidable commercial and naval power. The present work publishes the resolutions that the States General secretly reached during Witt's years leading the republic, matters being related that would have led to political, diplomatic, or economic trouble or reprisals if publicly known in "real time." Vol. I covers the period 26 February 1653 to 17 December 1658 and II from 17 January 1659 to 20 December 1668. Provenance: From the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919?2005). 4to (25 cm; 10"). 2 vols. I: [4] ff., 622 (i.e., 620) pp., [6] ff. II: [1] f., 687, [1 (blank)] pp., [4] ff. STCN 208192247. Not in Alden & Landis.
