1684 · Both in Amsterdam
The first edition was published in Rotterdam by Arnout Leers in 1654, anonymously to avoid censure by the ultra-Calvinists. This edition was revised and published posthumously, also anonymously. While the argument is made that the book was important, the political upheaval in Europe and the religious tenor in the low countries, would have made the book's influence negligible. In the Netherlands there already existed broad educational support despite the ultra-Calvinists; in France it would not have been embraced because of its pro-Protestant slant. (Pedagogy, Culture & Society, Vol 9, II, 2001: Brita Rang).
Nonetheless it is a fascinating glimpse at the upbringing of young boys, specifically, that of a prince.
The second work is by Antoine Varillas (1624-1696), a French historian who records the life of Guillaume (William) of Croÿ (1458-1521), Lord of Chièvres, who was the Chief Tutor and First Chamberlain to Charles V, who became the Holy Roman Emperor and Archduke of Austria, King of Spain, Lord of the Netherlands, and Duke of Burgundy.
