Description: "Discorso sopra le cose di fiandra & l'andate del Arci Duca Mattias." Manuscript in Italian. Rome, November 3, 1577. 6 1/2 pages on four leaves, who whole bound into modern hardcovers. 280 x 210mm. Some slight oxidizing of ink. ****************************** Unsigned letter, perhaps an official copy, to an unnamed addressee. The text appears to contain reports from Spanish and Austrian sources known to the papal Curia, and it discusses the motives of the Archduke Matthias of Habsburg (later Matthias, Holy Roman Emperor) in his summoning by the Catholic portion of the Netherlands nobility to assume Stadtholdership of the provinces. An interesting document related to the early years of the Dutch Revolt.
