D' ontroerde Leeuw ~ The distressed Lion
"In January 1671 a certain High German Prince, wrote to one of the Dutch Princesses that he was amazed about the silence in Holland about France's preparations for war"
These are the first swords and the title page of the second edition of a book series called "The distressed Lion", which gives in detail in Dutch a review of what happeneid in the Dutch Republic in the period from 1671 up to around 1675.
There's also a an English version but I haven't found it online yet. The author is Johannes Grybius and the printer is Steven Swart. Maybe one of our readers can hjelp mout?
These books are great, the author is very good informed and his writings are incredible detailed.
This is the link for the book!
