Grotius, a Dutch 17th century legal expert, was called upon by the United Dutch East India Company to provide legal justification for the Dutch practice of plundering other merchant ships at sea. He produced two treatises 'The Law of Prize and Booty' and 'The Free Sea.' In this book Borschberg both re-examines Grotius' premises and gives an account of the rivalry between the Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese in the Eastern Seas at the time. New Paperback. First Edition. 482 pages, almost 60 black and white illustrations, a bibliography and an index.
