Jan Janszoon Orlers La Généalogies des Illustres Comtes de Nassau avec la description de toutes les Victoires...1624 This work describes the genealogy (72 pages) and the victories (305 pages) of the Nassau family. It further contains three full-page frontispiece engravings, 13 portrait engravings in the text, and many double-page engravings of maps, battles and scenes from the various expeditions, including one of the Spanish Armada of 1588 assembled between Calais and Dover, one of the Anglo-Dutch expedition against Cadiz of 1596, and one of the Dutch expedition against Spain and the Canary islands of 1599.

The work is an important source for modes of warfare of the time which are clearly depicted in lively plates.
