Georg Adam Graf von Starhemberg ( London 1724 - Wien 1807) became in 1770 in Brussels ''ministre plénipotentiaire'' for emperor Joseph II at the court of Charles of Lorraine in succesion of Count Cobenzl. He was called back to Vienna in 1783. It is known he was particularly interested in the economic development of the Southern Low Countries. The manuscript ex-dono leaf in the 1787/1788 volume proofs that these volumes belonged to the Prince and were collected by him when he was serving in Brussels as a plenipotentiary minister to emperor Joseph II.
