In the first two parts he describes the towns, their trade, the surrounding countryside, and the people, and he devotes a large amount of space and much detail to the rise of Portuguese power in the various parts of India and to the later Dutch conquest of many of those places. In part two, for example, he uses about 150 pages to tell the story of the Portuguese conquest of Ceylon, Portuguese relations with the king of Kandy, Dutch negotiations with Kandy beginning with Spilbergen's visit in 1602, the Dutch conquest of Portuguese Ceylon, the VOC's continued difficulties with Kandy, the problems of governing Ceylon, and the attempts to reform the church there. Baldaeus' description of Hindu religion in part three depends heavily on Abraham Roger's work but also contains new information gained from his own observations' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.494). He introduced also some specimens of the Tamil language, including the translation of the Lord's Prayer, the first treatise, printed in Europe, on any Indian language.The fine plates and illustrations, in excellent impressions, represent the cities of Surat, Cochin, Tuticorin, Negapatam, Masulipatam, Galle, Negombo, etc., natives, costums, ceremonies, churches, fighting scenes, fortifications, elephant-hunt, etc. - A most important printed source for the establishment of Dutch power in Ceylon and south India. - A fine copy.Tiele 70; Cat.

DELLON, Gabriel. Historie der inquisitie tot Goa. En in andere gewesten van Indien. Uyt het Frans vertaalt. Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, 1697.Sm.8vo. Contemporary vellum. With engraved title-vignette, 3 engraved vignettes and 6 engraved plates (3 folding). (12),282,(17) pp. First Dutch edition; first published in French in Leiden in 1687: Relation de l'inquisition de Goa. - In 1668 Dellon sailed to India with the Compagnie des Indes. He travelled extensively along the Malabar coast. In 1673 he left the employment of the company and started a private medical practice in Damao, at that time a Portuguese colony. Six months later, early in 1674, he was arrested by the Inquisition and taken to Goa, where he was imprisoned for two years. He was then shipped to Lisbon, but released in the following year on condition that he should return immediately to France. .. It proved a considerable success , particularly in Protestant Europe, where it ran to numerous editions. Although long regarded purely as a work of propaganda, recent research has testified to its accuracy (Howgego p.304/305). ' Dellon's description of the Inquisition and of the practices of its officials and their collaborators is the only source available on the functioning of that institution by a cemtemporary who saw it from the inside' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe III,2, p.851). It includes also details of his stay in Bahia, Brazil. His account of the Inquisition was still forbidden in Portugal in 1769. - A nice copy.Cf. Borba de Moraes I, p.253-255; Sabin 19444-19447.

(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.
