With engraved portrait, frontispiece, folding general map and 30 finely engraved plates and maps (mostly folding). XXIII,411,(1) pp. First published in London in 1779. - Thomas Forrest (1729 - ca.1802) was engaged in 1770 in forming the new settlement at Balambangan, an island at the northern tip of Borneo. His expedition in charge of the English East-India Company (1774-1776) to the Moluccas and New Guinea, in pursuance of new sources of trade, was made in the Tartar, a native boat of about ten tons burden, with two English officers and a crew of eighteen Malays. He pushed the exploration as far as Geelvink Bay in New Guinea (further east than any of his company predecessors). The voyage was one of examination and enquiry rather than of exploration, and the additions made to geographical knowledge were corrections of detail rather than startling discoveries, but the tact with which he conducted his intercourse with the natives, and the amount of work done in a small boat, deservedly won him credit as a navigator (Hill p.219). The introduction contains a survey of the voyages made to New Guinea since 1511 and at the end is added a vocabulary of the Magindano language. - 'Erstem genauen Beochter von Neu-Guinea' (Henze II, p.261). - Some foxing and age-browning otherwise a good copy of an important and early work on New Guinea.Hill 623 ; Cox II, p.302; Ruinen C 66; Howgego F60.

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.

MATELIEF DE JONGE, Cornelis. Historische verhael/ vande treffelijcke reyse, gedaen naer de Oost-Indien ende China, met elf schepen .. inden jaren 1605, 1606, 1607 ende 1608. (Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 7 (of 11) engraved plates. 191 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - One of the most important voyages ever undertaken by the Dutch to the East Indies. Matelief sailed with eleven ships and 1446 men, his crushing victory over the Portuguese established Dutch supremacy in the East Indies, which was to continue until World War II. 'Matelief's fleet of eleven ships left Texel on May 12, 1605. From April 30 until August 24, 1606, he besieged Malacca in league with the sultan of Johore. He won two impressive naval victories over the Portuguese during this time. After he divided his fleet on January 6, 1607, Matelief visited Bantam, Jakatra, Amboina, and Ternate, where he built a fort, and the China coast, where he attempted to negotiate a trade agreement. His journal is well written and exceedingly rich in details. There seems no end to the information about receptions, negotiations with princes and officials, banquets and the food served at rgem, conversations, exchanges of letters, and treaties, all laced with Matelief's salty assessment of the events or the character of the dignitaries he met.

Modern half red morocco, spine ribbed, a.e.g. (binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe). With large woodcut title-vignette depicting two vessels and folding engraved plate depicting 6 views. 92 pp. The journal of Van Neck and Warwijck was first published by Cornelis Claesz in Amsterdam in 1600. - The Dutch navigator Van Neck (1564-1638) was a representative of the Verre Compagny who in 1598 commanded three of the ships of the first successful Dutch trading voyage to the East Indies. The other ships were commanded by Van Warwijck and Jacob van Heemskerk. Van Neck's ships became separated from those of Warwijck and Heemskerk shortly after rounding the Cape of Good Hope. He did see them only some time after his arrival at Bantam. Loaded with cargo, four of the ships under Van Neck returned to Holland in 1599, while Warwijck continued to the Moluccas and Heemskerk to the Banda Islands. Van Neck was accompanied by Willem Jansz, the discoverer of Australia, then on his first voyage as mate of the Hollandia. Van Neck's was the most profitable of the pre-VOC voyages. (Howgego p.746). An important account of the second voyage of the Dutch to the East-Indies and first Dutch voyage to the Moluccas, which became the foundation for later Dutch control of the Moluccan spice trade. Also including a vocabulary of Javanese and Malay words. The second part contains the voyage by Sebald de Weert. He sailed with the fleet of Jacques Mahu but was separated from the fleet in the Strait of Magellan and coincidentally encountered the fleet of Olivier van Noort which was sailing on a quite separate expedition which was to result in the first Dutch circumnavigation (Howgego p.1097). - Two important voyages combined in one volume. - A fine and scarce copy.Tiele 787; Tiele, Mémoire, 131; Landwehr, VOC, 251; Lach, Asia in the making of Europe III, p.439-440; Sabin 52214; European Americana II, p.493.

Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - The first successful Dutch trading voyage to the East Indies. The fleet sent out from Amsterdam by the successor of the company that financed De Houtman's venture, now called the Old East India Company, was a smashing success. Eight ships commanded by Jacob van Neck and Wybrand van Warwijck left Texel on May 1, 1598. Fifteen month later, on July 17, Van Neck returned from Bantam with four of his ships fully laden with pepper. The rest of the fleet, under Van Warwijck and Jacob van Heemskerck, made other stops on Java and then went to Banda, Amboina, and the Moluccas; here they established the three factories which became the foundation for later Dutch controle of the Moluccan spice trade. Van Heemskerck arrived in Amsterdam with two ships on May 19, 1600; Van Warwijck arrived with the remaining two ships at the end of August, 1600. The major contributions made by this account were full descriptions of Banda, Amboina, and the Moluccas.

ROELOFSZ, Roelof. Kort ende waerachtigh verhael van de tweede schipvaert by de Hollanders op Oost-Indien gedaen, onder admirael Jacob van Neck, getogen uyt het journael van Roelof Roelofsz, vermaender op't schip Amsterdam, ende doorgaens uyt andere schrijvers vermeerdert. (Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 4 engraved plates. 51 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - First published in Begin ende voortgangh. - The account of Jacob van Neck's second voyage was written for the most part by Roeloef Roelofszoon, an exhorter or chaplain on one of Van Neck's ships. Van Neck's fleet of six ships left Texel on June 28, 1600, and arrived in Bantam on March 30, 1601. From there the admiral sailed for the Moluccas, two of the ships arriving at Ternate on June 2. The sultan of Ternate accompanied the Dutch ships when they attacked the Portuguese fort on Tidore, a showy and inconclusive engagement that cost Van Neck his right hand. From Ternate Van Neck went to China, arriving off Macao on September 27, 1601. From there he sailed for Patani. Roelofszoon wrote very little about Patani beyond describing the trade and a couple of temples which he visited. Commelin, however, inserted a long and very interesting description of Patani, Siam, and Malacca, taken largely from a 1616 manuscript written by Victor Sprinckel. Following Roelofszoon's journal, Commelin included a brief account of the voyage of the remaining three ships from Van Neck's fleet written by Cornelis Claeszoon. It reports on the fleet's misadventures in Cambodia. Commelin also appended several treatises concerning East India trade and navigation and a discourse on the five routes to Cathay translated from William Bourne (London 1580) (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making of Europe, III,1 pp. 463-464).Landwehr, VOC, 250.

His instructions, in addition to destroying as much Iberian shipping as possible, were to drive the Spanish and Portuguese out of the Moluccas (Howgego p. 1065-1066). This account of Verhoeff's voyages is a composite piece. It starts with the journal by the chief merchant Johan de Moelre and continued, after he was killed, by the fleet's treasurer Jacques Le Febure. Followed by extracts from the journal of Reynier Dirckszoon, the pilot aboard one of the ships which sailed to Japan, and the journal of Jacob Specx and Pieter Segerszoon also on Japan. This piece is followed by a report by Samuel Bloemaert about trade and negotiations on Borneo and Appolonius Schotte's accounts of the Moluccas and Gillis Seys report of 1627 on Amboina. These materials constitute a rich source of information about the expansion of Dutch power in the Moluccas, the negatiations with the inlanders, the war with the Spaniards, the details of trade, and the daily life of the Dutch stationed there. This account of Verhoeff's voyage was never separately reprinted during the 17th century. (Lach & Van Kley, III, p.471-472). Landwehr, VOC, 250. [Boeknr.: 31991 ]
