It would be great if there was any chance to digitize the text of this dissertation. For it is certainly of big value for everyone who is, like myself, working on the Russian history of the 17th century.

In response to my post about an unfinished 50-year old dissertation in Russian-Dutch relations, a number of scholars reached out and graciously offered to keep potentially useful historical material from being discarded. I am happy to report that this material has now found a new home, with Professor Kees Boterbloem of the University of South Florida.
"From Pavonia to the Garden State: New Jersey's Dutch Past," the 39th Annual Conference of the New Netherland Institute, will take place in the state of New Jersey.
