Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius van Waasberge en Johannes van Someren, 1672.3 volumes in 1. Folio. Contemporary blindtooled vellum (1 hinge restored), with modern ties.

(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.

The government of Benares sent him off to England as a prisoner. He sought legal action against them, but ruined himself in the proces.

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.
