Abstract
  • Fag.H.3.44 no.38, ‘Antwoort van een getrouwe Hollander, op het memoriael, door den heere grave d’Avaux...’ was printed in 1684, during the time that Gaspar Fagel was Grand Pensionary of Holland. The Fagel collection during this time resembles what we can call Hendrik Fagel’s working papers: short, anonymous pamphlets containing official memoranda, speeches, resolutions, and ordinances, passing through Fagel’s hands in the offices of state, of which this is one. Fag.H.3.44 no.38 is an anonymous response to one of the latest memos of the French ambassador. The "getrouwe Hollander" (loyal Hollander) urges Dutch support for Spain and accuses the French of stalling negotiations while strengthening their military position in the Southern Netherlands. It captures the essence of a new age of pamphleteering and diplomacy, so carefully laid out in the Fagel Collection. Fag.H.3.44 no.38 is bound together in a volume containing 96 other individual texts, all printed in 1684. These are largely composed of speeches and memoranda by the Spanish and French ambassadors in The Hague, during the War of the Reunions (1683-1684), which saw French forces overrun Spanish possessions in the Low Countries. Imaged here also is Fag.H.3.44 no.38a, an (inserted?) leaf with title: 'Memoire de S.E. Mr. Le Comte D'Avaux, Ambassadeur extraordinaire de Sa Majesté tres-Chrétienne, presenté aux Estats Genereaux des Provinces Unies le 16 May 1684.'
