Interest van Holland, ofte gronden van Hollands-welvaren. Aangewezen door V.D.H.Amsterdam : Joan. Cyprianus vander Gracht, 1662 Stock Code: 113943
First edition, the octavo issue. "The only Dutch bestseller, this work is mainly an argument for industrial freedom plus moderate duties" (Carpenter), comparable and in some respects superior to Roger Coke's of 1670 and 1675, the merit of which consists chiefly in its freedom from errors of reasoning. De la Court "would have to be ranked very high in a history of economic thought or policy" (Schumpeter). The work had been circulated in manuscript and was published, without de la Court's permission, by De Witt, who made alterations and added two important chapters.
Octavo (152 x 95 mm), pp. , 267, . Contemporary vellum covered boards.
Small private ownership stamp to front free endpaper, early ownership inscription to the title. Vellum a little soiled, small diminishing pale ink stain to the upper margin through most of the book; a crisp, clean copy.
