, . . STCN (3 copies); Typ. Batava (2-5 copies, ed. sometimes undetermined). One of three "virtually identical" (Typ. Batava) "1599" editions of a proclamation by the States General declaring all seized Spanish property forfeit to the stadholder Maurits (Maurice), Prince of Orange, and forbidding shipping and trade in the enemy territories of the King of Spain and the Archduke of Austria. The first two pages are almost filled with a scathing diatribe against the "bloodthirsty" Spanish and reciting their crimes against the Dutch people and property, including wives and daughters.With a few lines of text underlined by an early reader. With some worm holes in the gutter margin, slightly affecting the woodcut initial and a few letters of the text, but otherwise in good condition.
