Stiched , with blind blue wrapper, uncut, with some dog earing and slightly soiled title page.Still a reasonable good copy. This pamphlet , attributed to J.B. Claessens , deals with the pursuit of Hendrik van der Noot (1731-1827) by the Austrian government. The pamphlet consists of various reports by Austrian agents in London, Brussels and Leuven. The first is signed Reldviezky and is dated from London, 5 September 1788: it certifies that he has been seen in the Haymarket and St James's Park, but is no longer lodging with his friend, a Flemish dentist, but with a musician named Gehot - this would be the violist Joseph Gehot, who had been in London since the late 1770s, but shortly after this moved to New York. The data were put together by J.B. Claessens, who signs the final page. The table at the end contains a detailed list of the expenses made by the spys during their travels to London. All the data were discovered at the Cabinet of General D'Alton in Brussels. ( history;belgium;Brabant;revolution;18th c.). .
