About This Item

1598 NETHERLANDS 1ed Historia Belgica van Meteren Belgium Flanders MAP Portraits

Emanuel van Meteren was a 16th-century Flemish historian who is known for his histories on the Low Countries. He chronicled many of the events of the late 1500s in the Netherlands and Belgium. Perhaps his most important book was "Historia Belgica" which was a thorough history of the Netherlands focusing on the reigns of important monarchs and military leaders. Notable figures covered in this work include:

· Maximillian I, Holy Roman Emperor

· Charles V and Phillip II of Spain

· Margaret of Parma, Dutch Governor

· Fernando Alvarez de Toledo, Duke of Alba

· John of Austria, Spanish military leader

This highly desirable 1598 first Latin edition contains 19 portrait engravings along with a folding map of the Low Countries.
