(Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 8 (of 13) engraved plates pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - In 1601-1603 Steven van der Hagen had commanded a pre-VOC voyage to the East Indies. In 1603 he was appointed to lead the first voyage sent out to the East entirely under the auspices of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). These voyages includes the victories won by the VOC over the Portuguese in Amboina and the Moluccas. Commelin fleshed out the account with lengthy descriptions of Goa, Cochin, and Pegu, all of which were taken from the journal of Gasparo Balbi. Appended to Van der Hagen's voyage is Paulus van Solt's journal of his voyage from Bantam to the Coromandel Coast on one of Van der Hagen's ships, the Delft. Van Solt's journal contains much detailed information about the trade and the negotiations with rulers and officials on the Coromandel Coast. From it the reader can gain a feel for the growing and successful Dutch establishment in Asia (Lach & Van Kley, III,1, Asia in the making of Europe, p.467). - (Missing pl. 1,2,3,12,13).Landwehr, VOC, 250 ;Ruinen I, 24.

Commelin appended two other journals to Sas' account: one describes the voyage of two ships to Acheh in 1600-1601 and ends abruptly with the capture of the commander and several crewmen by the natives.
