ARTICULI PACIS & AMICITIAE, INTER.CAROLUM II.ET CELSOS AC PRAEPOTENTES DOMINOS ORDINES GENERALES FOEDERATARUM BELGII PROVINCIARUM.
London. 1674. - [2],12pp. Small quarto. Modern three quarter calf and cloth, spine gilt. About fine. The First British printing of the Treaty of Westminster, ending the Third Dutch War. The Dutch, beset by enemies on all sides, were forced to make trading concessions throughout the world, and to again surrender New York, which they had retaken. This is the final passage of New York into British hands. The treaty effectively eliminated the Dutch threat to British colonization of the mid-Atlantic states, and meant that in the future the French would be the main challenger to British hegemony in North America. The fifth article provides for the removal of British settlers from Surinam. This is the official Latin text, apparently preceding an English- language printing of the treaty and is quite scarce, with EUROPEAN AMERICANA locating only four copies. DAVENPORT 69. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 674/86. SABIN 2146 (other eds). WING C2916.
