Valerius, Adrianus (Adriaan, Adriaen)

Valerius, Adrianus (Adriaan, Adriaen), Dutch lawyer, historian, poet, and musician; b. probably in Middelburg, c. 1575; d. Veere, Zeeland, Jan. 27, 1625. He settled in Veere as a notary in 1606, and later became sheriff and served as dean of the chamber of rhetoric. He wrote Neder-landtsche gedenck-clanck (Haarlem, 1626), a history of the Dutch and Spanish wars from 1555 to 1625; it includes 76 popular songs with accompaniments in French tablature for 1 or more 7-stringed lutes and 4-stringed citterns. P. J. Meertens, N. B. Tenhaeff, and A. Komter-Kuipers edited a complete ed. of the text with melodies but without the tablatures (Amsterdam, 1942). K. Bernet Kampers and C. Lelij ed. the song texts and tunes as De Heder en uit Valerius’ Nederlandtsche gedenck-clanck (Rotterdam, 1941).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
