MEURSIUS, Joannes.

Rerum Belgicarum libri quatuor. In quibus Ferdinandi Albani sexennium, belli Belgici principium. Additur quintus, seorsim anteà excusus, in quo induciarum historia; & eiusdem belli finis.

First edition. The first four books narrate the repressive governorship of the duke of Alva (1567–73), who was sent to the Netherlands to secure Spanish rule after the collapse of the rebellion of 1566–67. An earlier version of the fifth book, which ends with the truce agreed in 1609 between Spain and the United Provinces, had appeared as Rerum Belgicarum liber unus in 1612, but was withdrawn in the face of vehement criticism. The author, a classical scholar and close friend of Grotius, was appointed historiographer to the States General in 1611 and was tutor to Oldenbarnevelt’s sons.

En faveur de l’industrie et du bien-être, ainsi que pour une harmonie entre les consommations individuelles et sociales, mais contre le populationnisme agricole et l’impôt direct’ (INED).
