1747. [4], 24 pp.First and only edition of a series of illustrations of the decorations displayed during the inauguration of William Iv, Prince of Orange, who in 1747 became the Stadtholder of all the United Provinces and general and admiral of the Dutch army and navy.Around 1740 the Dutch Republic got involved in the War of the Austrian Succession, which lead to the occupation of States' Flanders (the northern part of Flanders, part of the Dutch Republic since the Eighty Years' War) by the French in 1747. This caused an enormous unrest in the Republic as this fully exposed the weakness of the Dutch defences, leading to a strong wish for restoration of the stadtholderate. When this was restored by the inauguration of William Iv, it brought an end to the Second Stadtholderless Period (1702-1747). A very good copy.l Berlin Kat. 2962; Landwehr, Splendid ceremonies 215; Muller, Historieplaten 3868; Praz, pp. 558-559."
