Letters and Papers relating to the First Dutch War, 1652-1654, Volume V

Vol 41 (1911), C.T. Atkinson

This remarkable compilation includes both official and private correspondence and papers from a wide variety of sources both English and Dutch (the latter translated), giving an extremely detailed and complete view of all aspects of the war. The first volume extends to August 1652. The translations of many of the Dutch documents are unsatisfactory, and should be corrected from the Corrigenda ed. A.C. Dewar, issued by the Society in 1932.

This runs from May to August 1653.
