Anglo-Dutch relations from the earliest times to the death of William the Third, being an historical introduction to a dictionary of the Low-Dutch element in the English vocabulary.

[The Hague: Martinus Nijhoff, 1925.]. First edition, large 8vo, pp. xix, [1], 293; original printed drab wrappers, a few innocuous smudges, creasing to spine, the spine side of the upper front cover bumped, with a small tear to spine end resulting, else a very good copy. "As volume after volume of the New English Dictionary appeared, I was struck with the large number of Low Dutch words which have in the course or time found either a temporary or a permanent place in the English vocabulary With the exception of Morris of Skeat and of de Hoog, no philologist, as far as I knew, had ever given much, if any, attention to this important element in the English language" (Author's Preface, p. xi).
