Notes: “The colonial dependence of the American settlements upon various European governments brings it about . . . that several of the treaties between European governments, and several of the bulls issued by the popes in virtue of their powers of international regulation, are fundamental documents for some of the earlier portions of American history. Other treaties, or individual articles in treaties, of the period before independence, though not of fundamental importance to that history, have affected it in greater or less degree. In the period since the United States became independent . . . not a few of the treaties concluded between European powers have had an influential bearing on the course of their development and their public action. “Taken altogether, therefore, European treaties, and the earlier papal bulls, form an important portion of the original material for American history. . . . In a few cases, as the researches made for this volume have shown, they do not exist in print. . . . In view of these considerations, it was a natural thought, to a department of historical research in an endowed institution, to serve the interests of historical scholars and of libraries by bringing together in one collection [these] treaties and parts of treaties. . . . Of this task, the first-fruits are presented in this volume, extending through the Treaty of Westphalia, 1648. The second volume, embracing treaties from that date to 1713, the date of the Treaties of Utrecht, is in preparation.” – Preface by J. Franklin Jameson, p. iii. “The documents printed in this volume illustrate the diplomatic aspect of the great struggle which, from the fifteenth century onwards, was in progress between the governments of the maritime powers of Europe, over the question of participation in the trade and territorial posession of the newly discovered lands.

“The story which they tell has a dramatic interest, culminating in the diplomatic victory which, in 1648, the Dutch were able to wrest from Spain.” – Introduction,
