I can also recommend very strongly the Dutch publisher
for books, journals and primary sources

Below I listed several books, essay's and articles on Dutch and Belgian history with an emphasis on the Golden Age and Dutch colonialism, WIC and the Dutch presence in the Atlantic area. In the brown section I listed all books which are written or translated into English. The blue section contains books in all other languages. Mind that some of the titles will link to a website.

Books, essay's and articles written in English about -mainly Golden Age- history of the Netherlands and Belgium

(For an extensive bibliography of the Dutch Colonial History I can also highly recommend 
Marco Ramerini's bibliography page of his wonderful 'Dutch Portuguese Colonial History' website)
