R.P. Famien Strada - Histoire de la Guerre des Pais-Bas - 1727

Superb book of this edition illustrated with a frontispiece, five engraved portraits (of the author, Charles V, or Philip II), three out-of-text engravings and a fold-out map of the Netherlands.

Famien Strada (1572–1649) was an Italian historian and Jesuit. He teaches rhetoric at the Roman College. Because of his position at the college, he was the most famous interpreter of sacred rhetoric during the seventeenth century.

The work includes a history of the Netherlands in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, in particular the Eighty Years' War (1568-1648), which led to the secession of the seven northern provinces, which in 1581 formed the Republic of the United Provinces.
