NAERDER BEDENCKINGEN, OBER DE ZEE-BAERDT, COOPHANDEL ENDS NEERINGHE.
[Amsterdam]. 1608. - [36]pp. Small quarto. Disbound. Very minor worming in gutter margin. Very minor foxing. Very good. Willem Usselinx, the founder of the Dutch West Indies Company and the most influential merchant of his day, argues here that the war with Spain must continue in order to preserve religious toleration and commerce in the Netherlands. He discusses the possibility that the war with Spain might spread to the West or East Indies, destroying trade, and he mentions the conspiracy of Lord Cobham and Walter Raleigh to murder King James. Stevens calls this pamphlet "Excessively rare. One of the earliest and most important publications of.that clear- headed and farseeing political economist, to whom Holland is perhaps more indebted than to any other one man, for her rapid growth and prosperity between 1600 and 1635." ASHER 32. BELL II:21. KRESS 297. STEVENS, BIBLIOTHECA HISTORICA 2159. SABIN 98200. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 608/171.
