17th century. Oil on vellum, framed in gilt frame. Good condition, frame slighly damaged. (31x14cm). On the back in ink some notes on the genealogy of the Van Dam family. Willem van Dam (Amersfoort 1596 - Leiden 1673) was a mennonite who fled in 1618 with his brother Peter to Holstein where he founded Friedrichstadt on the Eider. He was the son of Peter van Dam and Digna van Leemputte. Peter van Dam was a son of Pieter van Dam and Marie Verborch (also written as Verburgh). Digna van Leemputte was a daughter of Jan Jacobsz. van Leemputte and Catharina de Berges ten Essendelle (famous as Trijn van Leemput in Utrecht for demolishing the castle Vredenburgh in 1577). In 1616 after the death of stadhouder Maurits the political situation changed and the Van Dam brothers returned. In 1619 Willem became mayor of Amersfoort. When this city was besieged by Ernesto and his cousin Raimondo Montecuccoli on the 13th of August 1619 Van Dam decided to surrender the city a day later. Van Dam was prosecuted and banished for life for this betrayal. The Staten of Utrecht changed that verdict in 1631. In 1635 he became mayor of Amersfoort again and would serve 11 times more in this capacity. In 1648 he became member of the Staten-Generaal of the Netherlands. In the disastrous year 1671 he fled with his second wife Johanna, daughter of Rombout Hogerbeets, to Leiden, where he would die a year later. His son Pieter van Dam became lawyer ("Advocaat" ) for the VOC and secretary to the "Heren XVII." Descendants of Van Dam married with Van Zegwaart, Graafland, Pit, Wttewael van Stoetwegen. H151

Menestrier, Francois
Abbrege' methodique des principes heraldiques, ou du veritable art du blason.
Lyon, Coral/du Perier, 1661. 11o. Full leather, worn top spine end. Paper somewhat browned. Exlibris Daniel de Bruin. (18)+III+(9) pages. Illustrated with a folding engraving of the coronation of Charles King of Naples and Sicily in 1165 by Cardinal Raoul de Chevriers and 10 full page engravings of coats-of-arms and woodcuts in the text. Some water staining in the first few pages. Claude-François Ménestrier (9 March 1631 - 11 January 1705) was a French heraldist, a member of the Society of Jesus [Jesuit], and attendant of the royal court. Ménestrier was born in Lyon. He produced numerous books on heraldry, and was one of the greatest authorities on heraldry of his age. Ménestrier was the professor of the colleges in Chambéry, Vienne, Grenoble, and Lyon. During 1669-70 he intended to travel to Germany and Italy, but only reached Paris and lived there to his death. He was the most widely known heraldist of his time, and from 1611 he was in close correspondence with Philipp Jakob Spener, the founder of the German scientific heraldry who refused the merely symbolic interpretation of arms. Ménestrier maintained that we can know the essence of heraldry only from the sources from the age of living heraldry, but he was also influenced by the heraldic view of his age. Thus, his researches were abortive. This attractive book is dedicated to Claude Joseph and Leonard Francois de Chevriers, two French noblemen. The 'epistre' contains a genealogy of their family. H146
