DESCRIPTION EXACTE DE TOUT CE QUI S'EST PASSÉ DANS LES GUERRES ENTRE LE ROY D'ANGLETERRE, LE ROY DE FRANCE, LES ESTATS DES PROVINCES UNIES DU PAYS-BAS, & L'EVESQUE DE MUNSTER.
Amsterdam: Jacques Benjamin, 1668. 241,[2]pp. Numerous in-text engravings. Small quarto. Later half vellum and marbled boards. Scattered dampstaining, else very good. The most complete and detailed contemporary account of the Anglo- Dutch war from 1664 to 1667, when the Treaty of Breda brought it to an end. This work was first published in Dutch in 1667, although this first French edition of the following year probably made the information much more generally available. It is of particular American interest for the description of the loss of New Netherland, giving an account of the capture of New York and the surrender of Netherland, of which this and the preceding Dutch version are the first published accounts. It also prints a list of vessels and goods captured by the British in America, and accounts of De Ruyter's voyage to the West Indies, affairs in Barbados, the war in Europe, and the capture of Surinam by the Dutch.
