Herman Aeltsz was a printer in Amsterdam between 1656 and 1681. See: Van Eeghen, 1960–78, vol. 3, p. 14; Jagersma and Dijkstra, 2013, passim. Jagersma and Dijkstra erroneously suggest that it was Spinoza himself who hired printers. It was Jan Rieuwertsz Sr who interfered with the logistical aspects of the book production. Rieuwersz Sr.—under Spinoza's own full name—issued a translation in 1664 under the title Renatus Des Cartes Beginzelen der Wysbegeerte, I en II Deel; Overnatuurkundige Gedachten. Aeltsz was hired to typeset and print that Dutch version.
