*Lieuwe van Aitzema (1600-1669) was a Dutch diplomat, historian, spy for England during the First and Second Anglo-Dutch Wars, bon vivant and libertine. Cleverness and sarcasm make his style intriguing and vivacious. Since he included a large number of official documents in his works, supplied with his commentary, they are still considered of great importance to present-day historians. (*source: Wikipedia).
