Borba de Moraes, p. 50; Boxer, The Dutch in Brazil, pp. 253-255; Knuttel 8730. Second edition, of the Dutch translation of the peace treaty ending the Dutch-Portuguese war. The WIC (Dutch West India Company) and VOC (Dutch East India Company) were at war with the Portuguese Armada, mainly to gain hegemony in the overseas colonies and trade. The war officially ended in August 1661, though the peace treaty was not ratified until 1663. “The main provisions of the treaty were as follows. Portugal was to pay the United Provinces 4 million cruzados in sixteen years as an indemnity for the loss of Netherlands Brazil, ... The Dutch were to be granted trade and residence in Portugal and her overseas possessions on the same terms as those already enjoyed by the English, or which might be granted to the latter in the future... The treaty was to be ratified within three months and published within six; but owing to the subsequent disputes and delays, the formal publication did not take place until March and April 1663” (Boxer).Slightly browned and the margins somewhat thumbed. Paper wrappers soiled and spine damaged. Still a good copy.
