We have here the minutes of negotiations between Dutch ambassadors and the English Republic regarding the First Anglo-Dutch War, various commercial disputes, and matters in North America, 1653-54. The documents are chiefly in Dutch, but some are in English, French, or Latin; for example pp. 198-214 contain a draft in English followed by one in Latin "of Articles of Union, Peace and Confederation to be made between the Common-Wealth of England and the States General of the United-Province of the Neitherlands [sic]."Muller notes that this account "chiefly" concerns New-Netherland and that "it contains all the speeches and reports"; Asher adds that the information here is "not to be found in the letters of the Pensionary J. de Witt and other ministers." Provenance: 20th-century bookplate of J.W. Six; later in the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919-2005).
