The years following the Thirty Years’ War were marked by continued political unrest in Europe as the major powers vied with one another for military and economic superiority. Many of the events – such as the execution of Charles I of England, the first Anglo-Dutch naval war, the first Northern War, threats from the East, and Habsburg dynastic moves – all found expression in the popular German press. Reproduced in this volume are 450 German broadsheets (and related foreign models and copies) from the years 1649 through 1661. Very little of this material has been reproduced since its original appearance in the 17th century, and many of the individual sheets are extant in only one or two copies worldwide.
This volume is part of the only comprehensive edition of German political/historical broadsheets of the 17th century, planned to include ten volumes of reproductions and one index volume*. Each extant sheet is illustrated by a high-quality, full-page reproduction, and for each one all known duplicates are listed. Three decades’ work have been needed to draw this rare material from over 200 libraries, museums, archives, and private collections in eighteen countries. This edition makes accessible to scholars in numerous disciplines this important primary source for the 17th century.
