As founder of two commercial companies, he not only gave arms to his persecuted fellow-countrymen - contributed more than any power to annihilate Spain - brought to America the nation in which the principle of free communities (the vital principle of American Liberty) was carried out to its full extent - made Sweden a maritime power; ...': Comp. Klooster, The Dutch in the Americas, p. 17/20 and bibliography items 11 - 18. 'Ideas about a monopoly company that would command the Americas, as a counterpart of the VOC, had first been proposed by the indefatigable Antwerper Willem Usselincx (1567 - 1647). ... A religious refugee, the Flemish Calvinist Usselincx established himself in Middelburg in 1591, shortly afterwards presenting a project to the States General for the organiziation of a West India Company. It was the first of numerous proposals he was to make in the next 15 years. Usselincx had a vision of Dutch colonization of the New World ... Usselincx reasoned [that] Dutch ventures in the New World would have the added advantage of compelling Spain to divert forces to America and thus have a favourable effect on the war at home ... Finally, in 1606, after years of urging, The States of Holland greeted one of Usselincx's numerous proposals with approval. ...In 1608 alone, a host of pamphlets was produced pro and con, ... three pamphlets [Klooster, 14, 15] issued from the pen of Usselincx alone [The 'Bedenckingen', Naerder Bedenckingen' and 'Vertoogh'] ...All these pamphlets were published together in: "Den Nederlandtschen bye-corf".': James Ford Bell Libr.

Some unknown but enterprising Dutch bookseller, having been asked by a friend to obtain for him all the pieces that had appeared on the negotiations, conceived the idea of making a collection of them, ...Such is the origin, ... of the now rare book well known to bibliophiles by the title of 'Den Nederlandtschen Bye-Korf, ...
