    Review ------ "Rudolf Dekker does a good job of handling this text, which is both complex, and difficult [...]. The personal angle of the document opens an entirely new view of familiar events and characters [...]. The book demonstrates the huge importance that sources such as egodocuments can have for historical research [...]. I would recommend [the] book to all historians..." S. Gylfi Magnússon. In: Journal of Social History. ''Rudolph Dekker's book on the diary of Constantijn Huygens Jr offers its reader an accessible and enjoyable introduction to Dutch and English court life in the late seventeenth century. It will appeal to interested laypersons, and will serve well as a prescribed text for undergraduate students or as a point of reference for further reading for postgraduates and researchers [...] this book is to be recommended to university libraries, lecturers, and tutors of early modern studies, and certainly to anyone with a professional or personal interest in this period of European history.'' Christian Thorsten Callisen, University of Queensland. In: Parergon, 31, 2, 2014, p. 223-4. "[Huygens's diary] is a rich and fascinating source, and this volume by Rudolf Dekker does a highly useful job of advertising it." Tony Claydon, Bangor University. In: SHARP News, Vol. 23, no. 1 (Winter 2014), p. 6. ''In summarizing the contents of an important and understudied manuscript, and bringing it to the attention of English readers, Dekker has done a real service. As scholarly interest in later-seventeenth and eighteenth-century Dutch visual culture continues to grow, so, too, will the importance of Constantijn Huygens Jr. as a commentator on the arts and patronage of the time. This book should be a reference point for anyone concerned with early modern court culture, and especially with the complex history of cultural exchange between the Netherlands and Britain.'' Stephanie S. Dickey, Queen's University. In: Historians of Netherlandish Art, 31, 1, 2014, p. 36. ''Dekker is an ambassador for his main source, and he does not fail to show its richness and attractions.'' Helmer Helmers, University of Amsterdam.
