M'Leod, John. Voyage of his majesty's ship Alceste, along the coast of Corea, to the Island of Lewchew; with an account of her subsequent shipwreck. 2nd edition. London, John Murray, 1818.Contemporary half calf (extremities of spine sl. dam.).With portrait frontispiece and 5 hand-coloured aquatints. (8),323 pp. Second and best edition, first published in 1817; with the bookplate of Bob Luza. - ' The Alceste and the Lyra conveyed Lord Amherst's embassy to China, which was the second attempt by the British to open trade with China, after the first effort by Lord Macartney. The Alceste reached Rio de Janeiro in 1816, and then proceeded to the Cape of Good Hope. After a short visit there, Batavia was touched at in order to deliver dispatches for the evacuation of the country and reinstatement of Dutch control, after which the Alceste continued on to China. While the matters of the embassy were proceeding, the ships sailed on an expedition for the survey and exploration of the west coast of Korea and the Ryukyu Islands. In the course of this work a long visit was made to Okinawa. The people were very hospitable to the sailors and gave them a kindly, though careful, reception. On the return voyage, after taking Lord Amherst on board at Macao, Manilla was visited, and then, in Gaspar Strait off the coast of Sumatra, the Alceste struck a submerged reef and became a total loss. The crew and passengers reached the small adjacent island of Pulo Leat safely. Lord Amherst proceeded to Batavia to fetch help while the sailors fortified their island retreat, named Fort Maxwell after their captain. A long and vivid account is given of their experiences, of how they were attacked by Malay pirates, and of their final rescue. On their return voyage, St. Helena was visited, and an interesting account is given of an interview with Napoleon. Dr. M'Leod, the author of this account, was ship's surgeon on board the Alceste' (Hill p.407). - (Some foxing).Hill 1169; Abbey, Travel, 559; Borba de Moraes II, p.507; Lust 378; Cordier, B.S., col. 2108; Huntress 188C; Thomson, The Exotic and the Beautiful, 298; Löwendahl 792.

MATELIEF DE JONGE, Cornelis. Historische verhael/ vande treffelijcke reyse, gedaen naer de Oost-Indien ende China, met elf schepen .. inden jaren 1605, 1606, 1607 ende 1608. (Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 7 (of 11) engraved plates. 191 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - One of the most important voyages ever undertaken by the Dutch to the East Indies. Matelief sailed with eleven ships and 1446 men, his crushing victory over the Portuguese established Dutch supremacy in the East Indies, which was to continue until World War II. 'Matelief's fleet of eleven ships left Texel on May 12, 1605. From April 30 until August 24, 1606, he besieged Malacca in league with the sultan of Johore. He won two impressive naval victories over the Portuguese during this time. After he divided his fleet on January 6, 1607, Matelief visited Bantam, Jakatra, Amboina, and Ternate, where he built a fort, and the China coast, where he attempted to negotiate a trade agreement. His journal is well written and exceedingly rich in details. There seems no end to the information about receptions, negotiations with princes and officials, banquets and the food served at rgem, conversations, exchanges of letters, and treaties, all laced with Matelief's salty assessment of the events or the character of the dignitaries he met. Containing als several interesting inserts: a description of Malacca, Batu, Amboina, and a discourse on the state of Dutch commerce in the Indies. It is one of the earliest serious Dutch attemps at direct trade with China (Lach & Van Kley, III, p.468). One of the ships was the Erasmus, later renamed De Liefde, the first Dutch vessel to come to Japan. - (Missing pl. 2,5,7,11).Landwehr, VOC, 250. [Boeknr.: 31993 ]

PSALMANAZAR, George An historical and geographical description of Formosa, an island subject to the Emperor of Japan. Giving an account of the religion, customs, manners, &c. of the inhabitants. Together with a relation of what happened to the author in his travels; particularly his conferences with the Jesuits, and others, in several parts of Europe ... London, printed for Dan. Brown, a.o., 1704.Contemporary panelled calf (hinges splitting but holding). With engraved folding plate showing the 'Formosan Alphabet' (with tear), and 15 (of 16) engraved plates showing costumes, money, buildings, boats etc.(margin of folding plate of the funeral sl. dam.; plate 12 missing as often and map missing) XIV,(56),327,(9) pp. First edition. - One of the most fantastic literary forgeries of all times. Psalmanazar (N.F.B. de Rodes ?), a native from the south of France, led the life of an adventurer. Being instructed by Jesuit tutors in the history and geography of Japan he pretended to be a native of Japan, under influence of chaplain William Innes, to render the story more plausible, this was changed into being a native of Formosa. In London he attracted at once popular interest. Psalmanazar invented his own 'Formosan' language etc., and he wrote his fictitious narration. What was not due to his own imagination he borrowed from the accounts of Varenius and Candidius. Doubt at once arose over the authenticity of his narrative, and after Innes was sent as chaplain-general to the English forces in Portugal, he felt incompetent to sustain his imposture unaided. (D.N.B.). 'Its lurid descriptions of polygamy, human sacrifice, cannibalism and infanticide caused a sensation. Allegedly written in Latin, then translated into English, it rapidly went through two editions, with a French translation at Amsterdam in 1705, and a German version at Frankfurt in 1716' (Howgego V, P35). - Age-browned.Alt-Japan-Katalog 1222; Cordier, B.

With engraved allegorical frontispiece, printed title-page in red and black, folding portrait of Valentijn, 19 portraits of the Governors-General, and 326 illustrations, maps, plans, bird's-eye views and plates (most of them double-page or folding; including fragments of Javanese manuscripts). First edition. - One of the most extensive works on the history of the Far East (including Persia), which never can be superseded as many of the documents of which the author made use, do not longer exist. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church who lived for many years on Amboyna and Java. During this period he collected an enormous mass of information, especially in the fields of history, geography and ethnology, concerning all parts of the world where the Dutch East India Company (VOC) was active: Indonesia, with large parts on Batavia and the Moluccas, Persia, Malacca, Ceylon, India, Cape of Good Hope, Japan, China and Formosa. The work is profusely illustrated with fine engraved maps, plans, portraits and spectacular views. They are engraved by the best artists of the time like F. Ottens, J.C. Philips, G. Schouten, J. Goeree etc. mostly after designs by M. Balen. Apart from the fine engravings the work is of particular interest for its cartography. It contains interesting maps of Australia, probably drawn after manuscript maps now lost. For his descriptions of the natural history of Amboyna Valentijn used i.a. the unpublished 'Amboinsch Dierboek' by the famous naturalist Rumphius, of which the original manuscript has been lost. - (Not inserted and also not mentioned in the plate-index is the portrait of Governor General De Haan). - With bookplates of J.C. Pabst and A.A.H. Stolk. - A truely desirable copy.Tiele 1121; Cat. NHSM p.502; Landwehr, VOC, 467; Ruinen C 44; Alt-Japan-Katalog 1570; Cordier, Bibl.
