Placcaet ende ordonnantie opte wapeninge ende manninge vande schepen, soo ter coopvaerdye als visscherije, uytte Vereenighde Nederlanden over zee varende.Including: [drop-title:] Instructie voor de Co[m]missarisen in 't Vlije ende inde Sont, omme opsicht te hebben op de uyt-varende ende inkommende oostersche schepen, en[de] Noordt-Drunt ende Noordt-Caep-vaerders.The Hague, widow and heirs of Hillebrant Jacobsz. van Wouw, 1627. 4to. With woodcut arms of the States General on title-page. Sewn without supports and not bound.
- Picarta (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy); cf. STCN (2 copies of 16 January 1627 ed.); Tiele, Pamfletten 2213; Wulp 2006. Second copy located of the only known edition of the third(?) revised version, promulgated on 17 March 1627, of a proclamation specifying the numbers, types and weights of cannons and other arms as well as the number of men and boys required for ships in various weight classes, covering (separately) both merchant ships and fishing ships (the latter would include whaling, though only herring fishery is explicitly mentioned). War with Spain had resumed at the end of the 12 Years' Truce in 1621, so that ships were always in danger of attack. An appendix, also dated 17 March 1627, gives instructions for the officials who were to oversee the Dutch shipping in the ├śresund (between Denmark and Sweden) and the Vlie (between the islands off the coast of Friesland), as well as major centres elsewhere in the Netherlands. The only other copy we have located is in the Rotterdam Public Library.With a small worm hole through most leaves, a few faintly browned patches and one corner of 2 leaves torn off, not approaching the text. The sewing has come loose, so that the quires are no longer attached to each other. In good condition and trimmed only at the foot (and there only slightly).
