A Anvers, Chez L.P. Delacroix, 1814. Two works in one. (2), 83, (1) pp.; (4), 94 pp. 12mo. Modern marbled boards, paper label to spine, all edges gilt. Knuttel 23720 (for the first work.) Knuttel dates the first work 1814: there exists a Dutch translation of the first work published in Utrecht in 1814. Both works discuss the possible reunion of the Southern Netherlands with the United Provinces: the French had been defeated and the question now became whether or not to recontruct the former Low Countries. These two works are rather uncommon: the first is a ardent plea for the reunion of Belgium and the Netherlands, which provoked a good number of refutations and a lively polemic: the second work is an exemple of both.The Eighty Years War had divided the Low Countries into a Northern part, the United Provinces, and a southern part, the Southern Netherlands. The Southern Netherlands were ruled by the Spanish Habsburgs, then by the Austrian Habsburgs, and were conquered by the French revolutionary armies in 1794 to become part of Revolutionary France. In 1814, the secret Treaty of Chaumont stipulated that Holland should receive the additional territory of Belgium and this was confirmed by article 6 of the Treaty of Paris. The Battle of Waterloo secured the final deliverance of Belgium which became part of the buffer state created by the Great Powers to thwart French imperialism: the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Belgian Revolution of 1830 led to the separation of the Southern Provinces from the Netherlands and to the establishment of a Catholic and bourgeois, officially French-speaking and neutral, independent Belgium.
