Additional Details

"This "Dutch Mercury" is a sort of Annual Register, and is continued to 1815, or later; the volumes which cover the period of the Dutch colonization in New-Netherland, and of the first period of the English government there, and the history of the War of Independence, are of much value to the student." - Sabin 32523.
