JONGE, Johannes Cornelis de. Geschiedenis van het Nederlandsche zeewezen. 3e uitgaaf. Vermeerderd met de nagelaten aanteekeningen van den overleden schrijver, en uitgegeven onder toezicht van J.K.J. de Jonge. Zwolle, Van Hoogstraten & Gorter, 1869.5 volumes (including index). Original half cloth (rebacked with the original spines mounted), spines lettered in gilt. With 13 maps and plates (mostly folding) and 44 portraits (foxed as usual). Third and best edition. - 'The most authentic history of the Dutch marine, founded entirely on documents of the Royal Archives. It is the more important as many of these documents were consumed, after the publication of the work, in the great fire of 1853, which destroyed a part of the Archives. Its value for the American collector needs not to be specified, as it contains very ample material for the history of the West-India-Company, the early expeditions to America, the wars with the Spaniards and Portuguese there, and the transmarine colonies. Many of the fine portraits are taken from old pictures, drawings, and very rare plates, not known before' (Muller, America, p.87).Cat. NHSM I, p.353; Sabin 36635. [Boeknr.: 29133 ]

KLUIT, Adriaan. Iets over den laatsten Engelschen oorlog met de Republiek en over Nederlands koophandel, deszelfs bloei, verval, en middelen van herstel. Amsterdam, Wouter Brave, 1794.Original boards (spine dam.). VI,360 pp. From about 1720 Dutch wealth ceased to grow. Around 1780 the national product of the Kingdom of Great Britain surpassed that of the Dutch. Whereas in the 17th century the commercial success of the Dutch had inspired English jealousy and admiration, in the late 18th century the growth of British power, and the concurrent loss of Amsterdam's preeminence, led to Dutch resentment. When the Dutch Republic began to support the American rebels, this led to the fourth war, and the loss of the alliance made the Dutch Republic fatally vulnerable to the French. Soon it would be subject to regime change itself. [Boeknr.: 2687 ]
