'The Wars of Nassau' by G. Baudartius (De Nassausche oorloghen)
This important work covers the first five decades of the Eighty Years War, and is written from a Contra-Remonstrant point of view. The engravings were done by several engravers. Several plates are after 'Geschichtsblatter' by Frans Hogenberg and after plates from J.J. Orler.
It describes and depicts the battles, sieges and major political events in great detail.

Willem Baudartius (1565-1640), born in Deinze (Flanders) fled with his family from the Inquisition in 1565. He returned to Gent in 1577, but had to flee again in 1585. He went to Leiden (Northern Netherlands) and Franeker where he studied theology and Hebrew with Drusius. Baudartius became a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church and was invited by the Synode at Dordrecht to help with the translation of the Bible in Dutch. He finally settled in Leiden where he devoted his life to translating and writing. He was also the author 'Morgenwecker', a book about the cruelties of the Spaniards.
