The most substantial historical-topographical description of the Dutch Republic in the eighteenth century is De Tegenwoordige Staat der Vereenigde Nederlanden (The Current State of the United Netherlands, 23 volumes, 1738–1803). Augmenting this was a richly illustrated publication, Het Verheerlijkt Nederland (The Netherlands Exalted, 9 volumes, 1745–1774). Because of their encyclopaedic approach these publications can be regarded as typical products of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. So far, I have collected a rich data set, mainly concerning the relation between the text and the images of the two publications, and specificities about the depicted architecture.
