He was called back to Vienna in 1783. It is known he was particularly interested in the economic development of the Southern Low Countries. The manuscript ex-dono leaf in the 1787/1788 volume proofs that these volumes belonged to the Prince and were collected by him when he was serving in Brussels as a plenipotentiary minister to emperor Joseph II.
