Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Warfare and the Age of Printing: Catalogue of Early Printed Books from before 1801 in Dutch Military Collections contains the table of contents, acknowledgments, and preface. The book describes some ten thousand books from the period 1500 to 1800 originating from nine Dutch Defence institutions and collections. The importance of the printed book to military affairs emerges from the original knowledge found in the professional military literature as well as from the rich military book culture. The oldest extant book that the Ministry of Defence deposited with the Army Museum dates from 1531.
