You can now download volumes of The First Dutch War from Google Book Search
I discovered, yesterday, that Google Book Search now makes the volumes of The First Dutch War that are not still under copyright available for download as pdf files. Finding them is a bit tricky, but it is really a great thing. That, along with Granville Penn's book about William Penn are a great help to research, as they are "searchable". For some reason, you can't just search for "The First Dutch War", but have to search for content. For some reason "robert blake 1652 dover" got me to Vol.III of The First Dutch War. I got to Vol.II by searching for "Michiel De Ruyter". I found Vol.I by using "sir george ayscue 1652".
