The Dutch Pamphlets series comprises the complete Knuttel collection from the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the National Library of the Netherlands. The series will be supplemented with other Dutch pamphlet collections in the near future.

Pamphlets dated between 1542 and 1853 from the Van Alphen Collection, University Library, Groningen: The pamphlets range from political apologies and manifestoes to tracts for and against predestination in theology. Among them are many funeral sermons and lectures. Battles, sieges, treaties, riots and political assassinations form the subject matter of many pamphlets. Most of the pamphlets are published in the Netherlands, but the collection also includes pamphlets from Germany, Belgium and France.

The majority of the images in this database have been scanned from microfiche. These black-and-white scans have been replaced with full-color images whenever available. More than 600 pamphlets can now be viewed in full color.

The pamphlets in TEMPO derive from different library collections and have been cataloged according to different standards. In order to achieve better search results we are continuously working on improving the quality of the bibliographic records in the database.

Dutch Pamphlets 1486-1853: The Knuttel Collection

Introduction

The Knuttel Collection at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the National Library of the Netherlands, is the most extensive pamphlet collection in the Netherlands. It consist of roughly 31,000 pamphlets ranging from political apologies and manifestoes to tracts for and against predestination in theology. Battles, sieges, treaties, riots, and political assassinations form the subject matter of many pamphlets. Domestic issues of all sorts are commented upon or caricatured, sometimes in rhyme, and political events outside the Lowlands are chronicled as well. Tracts on astrological predictions and the appearance of comets permit the study of popular culture and mentalities. In short, historians of all sorts can draw on these texts for their research.

W.P.C. Knuttel

The collection incorporates all pamphlets from 1486 to 1853 in the collection of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek which have been cataloged by Willem Pieter Cornelis Knuttel (1854-1921). His Catalogus van de pamfletten-verzameling berustende in de Koninklijke Bibliotheek was published in 9 volumes between 1889 and 1920.

Languages

The majority of the pamphlets are in Dutch but there are also texts in French, German, Latin, and English.

Access

The bibliographic descriptions in the on-line catalog on this website derive from both W.P.C. Knuttel's catalog and the Short-Title Catalogue Netherlands (STCN). Subject headings are in English.

Historical background: the years 1486-1648

The period from 1486 to 1648 was of crucial significance for the history of the Low Countries and the present Dutch State. This period first witnessed the consolidation of seventeen quite disparate provinces under the hegemony of the Habsburg Monarchy. Later, the Revolt of the Netherlands against the Spanish Habsburg King Philip II led in the course of eighty years of warfare to the establishment of the Republic of the United Provinces, the forerunner of the modern Netherlands State. The Southern Netherlands - now the modern states of Belgium and Luxembourg - continued under Habsburg dominion. Inextricably bound up with these developments on the political level was the history of the Reformation in the Low Countries. The successful implantation of Calvinist Protestantism in the North and the triumph of Counter-Reformation Catholicism in the South were recognized in 1648 in the Treaty of Munster, which ended the Eighty Years' War.

The years 1649-1750

After the official recognition of its independence in 1648 the Dutch Republic quickly established itself as an economic, political and military power in Europe and a formidable contender in the struggle for trade and glory overseas. The second half of the seventeenth century was a golden age for the Dutch. Economic rivalry with England led to several naval wars, but in 1689, the Dutch Stadtholder William of Orange was invited to assume the throne of that country after the Glorious Revolution had driven James II from power. In the disaster year of 1672 French and other armies penetrated deep into Dutch territory, exacerbating the internal conflict between the States and Orangist parties that led to the murder of the Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt and his brother by a mob in The Hague. The Republic survived this ordeal, recovered and prospered. The eighteenth century brought a relative eclipse of the Republic on the European stage and the beginnings of the reforming Patriots movement at home.

The years 1751-1853

Dutch pamphlet-writing in the second half of the eighteenth century was dominated on the home front by the struggle between the conservative Orange 'party' and the reformist 'Patriots', a conflict which culminated in near revolution in 1787, and by the Fourth Anglo-Dutch War (1780-84) between the Dutch Republic and Great Britain. Meanwhile, milestones of international history such as the American War of Independence and the French Revolution did not pass unnoticed.

The turn of the century witnessed the transformation of the worn-out Dutch Republic into a modern state through the French invasion of 1795, the formation of a semi-independent Batavian Republic and Napoleonic Kingdom of Holland, the annexation by France and finally the creation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as we know it today, under the restored House of Orange in 1813-1815.

The Belgian insurrection of 1830 and the political reforms of 1848 were the principle events of the next forty years to form the basis for discussion, while many pamphlets were devoted to subjects such as the colonies and slavery, the introduction of railway transport, the discovery of smallpox vaccine and the re-establishment of the Roman Catholic ecclesiastical hierarchy.

Dutch Pamphlets 1542-1853: The Van Alphen Collection

Pamphlets dated between 1542 and 1853 from the Van Alphen Collection, University Library, Groningen. The pamphlets range from political apologies and manifestoes to tracts for and against predestination in theology. Among them are a lot of funeral sermons and lectures as well. Battles, sieges, treaties, riots and political assassinations form the subject matter of many pamphlets. Most of the pamphlets are published in the Netherlands, but the collection also includes pamphlets from Germany, Belgium and France.

The core of the collection is formed by four large acquisitions: 27 vols., collected by the Counter Reformist preacher Willem Crijnsz, were acquired in 1751. These vols. contain pamphlets regarding the religious differences during and after the Twelve Year Truce (1609-1621). Another 59 vols. contain 1253 pamphlets from the period 1617-1760. Date of acquisition and former owner are unknown. 95 vols. (date of acquisition and former owner also unknown) contain political tracts concerning the differences between England and the Dutch Republic and the troubles in the Republic.

Flugschriften des 16. Jahrhunderts

   

Editor: Hans-Joachim Köhler

The Flugschriften series contains well over 9,000 German and Latin pamphlets printed in the Holy Roman Empire. The collection is supplemented on an annual basis. The pamphlets from 1501-1530 are primarily concerned with the early Reformation movement and its propaganda, the Peasants' War, the threat presented by the Turks, and the various conflicts among the Western European countries.

The pamphlets from 1531-1600 deal with a broad spectrum of themes, such as the Turkish wars, the revolt of the Netherlands, the persecution of French protestants, the status of Calvinists and Zwinglians in the Holy Roman Empire, the Council of Trent, the Anabaptist Kingdom of Münster, the Schmalkaldic War and the Interim, propaganda against the papacy and the Jesuits, intra-Protestant theological quarrels, the building of confessional networks, witch-hunting, and anti-Jewish polemics.

The bibliographic descriptions in the on-line catalog on this website derive from the printed guides accompanying the annual installments of the IDC microfiche series. Where available, bibliographic information about printing places, printers and publication dates has been added, as well as language information.

Jahrhunders by Hans-Joachim Köhler (Tübingen: bibliotheca academica Verlag, 1991- ). Currently, TEMPO offers an on-line catalog to the microfiche collection only. We intend to start adding digital images of the pamphlets themselves in the course of 2007.
