[Commerce] Mémoires sur le commerce des Hollandois

dans tous les états et empires du monde. Où l'on montre quelle est leur manière de le faire, son origine, leurs grands progrès, leurs possessions & gouvernement dans les Indes. Comment ils se sont rendus maîtres de tout le commerce de l'Europe (...). Nouvelle edition augmentée de plusiers mémoires, & du tarif general d'Hollande. Amsterdam, Du Villard & Changuion, 1718, 2 parts in one vol., XVI,215,(9 publisher's catalogue); 103,(1) p., contemporary calf, ribbed and gilt back with morocco letterpiece, small 8vo.

Somewhat (water)stained copy, with in a few places old annotations in pen; lacks flyleaf, resulting in a slightly browned title due to the leather of the front board; binding with light wear. Good copy. This is the second edition, the first apeared in 1717. Lovely and important treatise on how and with which international goods the Dutch became the trademasters of Europe. The second volume is a very extensive pricelist of goods traded in the Netherlands.
