(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.
