A number, probably a shelf mark, written in ink near the upper edge of the title. Oval library stamp in red on the title. Small ink stain on outer edge) (Note: The German historian Adolf Brahel, latinized as Adolphus Brachelius, who was a vicar of the Stiftskirche von St. Cunibert in Cologne, published his World history Historia aut verius succincta epitome historiae annorum 34; nempe ab anno 1618 usque ad annum 1649, in Cologne in 1650. He died young in 1652. His style is said to be elegant and clear. The Historia covers the Thirty Years' War, a series of wars which raged through Central Europe between 1618 and 1648. It was one of the longest, most destructive conflicts in European history. Initially a war between Protestant and Catholic states in the fragmenting Holy Roman Empire (Germany), it gradually developed into a more general conflict involving most of the great powers of Europe, becoming less about religion and more a continuation of the France-Habsburg rivalry for European political pre-eminence. (...) The Thirty Years' War saw the devastation of entire regions, with famine and disease significantly decreasing the population of the German and Italian states, the Kingdom of Bohemia, and the Low Countries. The war also bankrupted most of the combatant powers. (Source for the Thirty Years' War, Wikipedia) § Brachelius' Historia was translated into Dutch by the schoolmaster Lambertus van den Bosch, ca. 1610- ca. 1700. It was first published, with a continuation till the year 1654, in Amsterdam in 1655. Our copy is the fourth edition of this translation. The second edition was published in 1656, the third in 1659. In 1654 Lambertus van den Bosch was appointed Conrector of the Schola Latina in Dordrecht, and in 1671 fired because of drinking problems and negligence. He wrote a great number of justly forgotten pamphlets, plays, poems, and published translations into Dutch of works written in Latin, English, French Italian and Spanish. (NNBW 4,231) Van den Bosch added a final chapter of his own, which he wrote after the same manner as Brachelius. It mostly concerns the First of the Anglo-Dutch Wars, which lasted from 1652 to 1654. The war was caused by disputes over trade. This continuation chapter of Van den Bosch offers portraits of Cromwell, and the Dutch naval heroes Michiel de Ruyter, Jan van Galen, Witte de With, and Jan Evertz. Van den Bosch probably used for his translation the second edition Historiarum Nostri Temporis Authore Adolpho Brachelio Editio Secunda: In duas partes divisa. Priore emendatior, & continuata in annum 1652. diversis variorum Principum, & virorum illustrium figuris exornata, Cologne 1652. § Brachelius is mistakenly called on the title page of this Dutch translation a member of the Jesuit order. The error probably occurred, De Backer assumes, because Brachelius' Historia is in fact a continuation of the immense popular Romani, Historiarum ab origine mundi, usque ad annum (...) 1598, Epitomae libri decem of the Italian historian Orazio Torsellino, who was indeed a Jesuit. (Augustin de Backer & Aloys de Backer, 'Bibliothèque des écrivains de la Compagnie de Jésus', Volume 5, Liege 1859, p. 94)) (Provenance: On the title the stamp of 'Bibliotheek Missiehuis, Stein') (Collation: *8, A-2R8, 2S4) (Photographs on request)
