Just received my "Knights of Orange" copy...magnificent work, well worth the cost. Excellent coverage and illustrations. Highly recommend this study. Hundreds of useful illustrations plus a well organized text make this book a must for anyone interested in the topic.

This work opens with order of precedence of Dutch orders, a brief history of the Netherlands, and biographies of William I & Queen Wilhemina. A discussion of the decoration award process follows. Next, the author provides a detailed analysis of each of the various orders including very useful information on statutory reorganizations. Notably, his account of 1969 changes to the House Order of Orange clarifies what can be an extremely confusing subject. The author profiles two foreign recipients of Dutch orders to give an idea of individuals honored with Dutch Orders. He closes with advice to collectors, notes on hallmarks and other related details.
