(15) pp. (text set in two columns). Etracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - This was the first general account of Siam published in the seventeenth century; as such it was widely distributed and generally consulted as a source by later writers. Designed as a report to the VOC, Schouten's description is that of a capable and devoted servant of the Company. It is nonetheless an incisive discourse in which the author truthfully records and sympathetically comments on what he observed during eight years of service in Siam (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making of Europe, III,3, p.1174).Landwehr, VOC, 250; Cordier, B.J., col. 339.

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.

Leyden, Nicolaes van Geelkercken, 1619.Oblong 8vo. Modern vellum. With fine engraving on title-page and 25 engraved maps and plates. 192 pp. First edition. - Joris van Spilbergen (Antwerp 1568 - Bergen op Zoom 1620) was appointed in 1614 to head an expedition to the East Indies for the East India Company (VOC) by way of the Strait of Magellan to reassert Dutch claims to access into the Pacific from the east. The first attack on the Spanish was made on Santa Maria in Chili. He went on north to Valparaiso, Acapulco, further along the Mexican coast. In 1616 he reached Guam and Manila and thence to Ternate and Java. Joris van Spilbergen was the second Dutchman to circumnavigate the world. He discovered land along what is now the coast of California. 'Spilbergen had succeeded in establishing the power and reputation of the Dutch East India Company. In Java he took on board the crew of Le Maire and Schouten whose vessels had been confiscated. Le Maire and Schouten had discovered several small islands, Staten Landt, and the Straits of Le Maire, and had been the first to round Cape Horn' (Hill 1619). 'Spilbergen's voyage was the most succesful Dutch circumnavigation to date. The fleet had kept together, there had been little loss of Dutch life, and the expedition had metted a considerable profit for its sponsors' (Howgego S159). A short survey of another of the most important early voyages around the world, by Schouten and Le Maire in the years 1615 to 1617, is added at the end (Australische navigatien). It reports Le Maire's proof that Tierra del Fuego is an island and his discovery of what is still called the Strait of Le Maire, an alternative route to the Pacific. 'The Mirror is an extremely important book for the history of Dutch navigation' ( Borba de Moraes p.827). Including a folding world map, a folding map of South East Asia, a double-page map of the Pacific and South America, and views of islands and ports (4 double-page).- A very fine copy of the two famous Dutch circumnavigations.Tiele 1025; Tiele, Memoire, 65; Cat.
