His travel-account stayed very popular for a long time because of his ample and vivid descriptions of the countries, the different peoples and anything of note concerning the animals, plants, etc. of Java, Amboyna, Ternate, Celebes, Cape of Good Hope, coast of Coromandel, Malabar, Persia, Arabia, Ceylon, etc. With fine engraved views of Batavia, Ternate, Malacca, Makassar, Colombo, Cape of Good Hope etc. by C. Decker and J. Kip. Most of them are the first accurate topographical views of these towns. Because of the bad weather the fleet arrived on the return voyage in Bergen (Norway), where Schouten eyewitnessed the attack by the English in 1665. 'Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions' (Howgego p.947). 'As a physician, Schouten had a more than ordinary interest in flora and fauna and in hygiene and living conditions' (Lach, Asia in the making III, p.955). - Occasionally some minor staining, margins of 1 plate restored with loss of very small part of the image, added a plate index in manuscript. - A good copy of the rare editio princeps.Tiele 990; Cat.
