BALDAEUS, Philippus. Naaukeurige beschryvinge van Malabar en Choromandel, der zelver aangrenzende ryken, en het machtige eyland Ceylon. Nevens een omstandige en grondigh doorzochte ontdekking en wederlegginge van de afgoderye der Oost-Indische heydenen. .. Zijnde hier by gevoeght een Malabaarsche spraak-konst. Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius van Waasberge en Johannes van Someren, 1672.3 volumes in 1. Folio. Contemporary blindtooled vellum (1 hinge restored), with modern ties. With title printed in red and black with printer's device, engraved allegorical title-page, coat of arms, 1 (of 2) engraved portrait by A. Blooteling of the authour (missing the portrait of Geraerd Hulst), 3 plates depicting Malabar characters, 34 engraved maps and plates (mostly double-page), and 52 engravings in the text. (10),198;132 (=232);188,(11) pp. First edition.- The book by Filippus Baelde (1632-1672) is divided into three parts: the first is a description of coastal India, the second treats Ceylon, and the third is a discussion of Indian religion. 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.

XL,222; 240 pp. First French edition; first published in English in London in 1773. - Willem Bolts (c. 1740-1808) was a Dutch adventurer who entered the English East India Company in Bengal, and got into trouble for private trading in the name of the East India Company. The government of Benares sent him off to England as a prisoner. He sought legal action against them, but ruined himself in the proces. This vigorous exchange of views developed into a bitter controversy and played an important part in fuelling the extensive public debate that was taking place on the subject of the East India Company's operations in India. The French translation was made by Jean Nicolas Demeunier. - Pasted in is a letter in French, dated 1776, dealing with the ceding of Benares by the Rajah to the English East India Company.Cox I, p.299; Chadenat 2791.
