X,242 pp. First Dutch edition; first published in English in the Proceedings of the Association for promoting the discovery of the interior parts of Africa. London 1798. - 'The African Association was founded in 1788. Its activities mark the beginning of African exploration in a systematic way, as well as the furthering of British trade and political prestige on that continent. This association was later merged into the Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was the River Niger - where was its source and what was the direction of its flow, etc. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for the leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Horneman, and Houghton, all of whom either died while enroute or were murdered by the fanatical Moors. The fifth, that of Mungo Park, was rich in geographical results, though he too died on his second expedition' (Cox I, p.388). This book contains the travel-accounts in Africa of Daniel Hougton (1790-91) and of Mungo Park (1795-97, his first expedition); with geographical explanation by James Rennell. - Good copy; very rare.Gay 2788 (English ed.); Not in Tiele.

HOUTMAN, Cornelis de. Om de zuid. De eerste schipvaart naar Oost-Indië onder Cornelis de Houtman, 1595-1597, opgetekend door Willem Lodewycksz. Vertaling, inleiding en annotatie Vibeke Roeper en Diederik Wildeman. (Nijmegen, SUN,1997). Wrappers. With illustrations. 247 pp. Cornelis de Houtman (2 April 1565 - 1 September 1599), brother of Frederick de Houtman, was a Dutch explorer who discovered a new sea route from Europe to Indonesia and managed to begin the Dutch spice trade. At the time, the Portuguese Empire held a monopoly on the spice trade, and the voyage was a symbolic victory for the Dutch, even though the voyage itself was a disaster. Houtman was also a spy, having worked against the Portuguese by bringing back to the Netherlands privileged nautical information obtained during his stay in Portugal. [Boeknr.: 14560 ]

Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - A group of Amsterdam merchants was responsible for the venture of the first Dutch voyage to the East in 1595. The four small ships sailed via the Cape of Good Hope to Bantam, a large trading centre on the west coast of Java. Three of the four ships finally returned to Amsterdam. 'Despite the loss of many men and one of the ships, troubles with both Javans and Portuguese, and profits barely large enough to cover expenses, the return of De Houtman's fleet set of a flurry of activity among Dutch entrepreneurs. In 1598, the year after its return, no fewer than twenty-five ships were sent out by merchants of the provinces of Holland and Zeeland alone' (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making, III,1, p.439). This voyage provided European readers with the most detailed description of Java to date and with the first continuous description of Bali in any language. At the Cape they landed and encountered a party of Hottentots. - (Part of plate 17 (market scene) missing; some plates cut slightly short). - Rare early edition of the 'First Fleet'.Landwehr, VOC, 251; Tiele 512; Tiele, Mémoire, 120; Cat.

With large woodcut with 2 ships on title-page and folding engraved plate depicting 6 views of the fleet in various bays and harbours. (2),76 pp. The first official account of the circumnavigation was published in 1626. - Jacques Le Hermite (1582-1624) commanded a punitive fleet of eleven ships and 1637 men to the coasts of South America with the objective of clearing the westward route to the Pacific of Spanish and Portuguese shipping. The fleet was outfitted under the auspices of the Dutch gouvernment, the two major companies, the Dutch East India Company and the Dutch West India Company, having little interest in the Pacific route. With the flagship Amsterdam along with the Delft under vice-admiral Geen Huyghen Schapenham and with Adolph Decker, captain of marines, Le Hermite's fleet left Texel on 29-4-1623, raided the coast of Guinea, then sailed south of to the coast of Patagonia. It then passed through the Strait of Le Maire and sighted Cape Horn on 14-2-1624. While in the region the expedition discovered and anchored in the Bay of Nassau, charting the surrounding islands (including the Hermite group). In addition, it was shown for the first time that it was possible to sail northward through the Le Maire strait. After coasting South America and plundering a few Spanish settlements, the fleet continued across the Pacific and was eventually disbanded at Batavia. Le Hermite, already a sick man at the time of the outward voyage, died at Callao in Peru and was buried on San Lorenzo Island near Lima. Command passed to Schapenham, whose article contains details of the latter section of the voyage (Howgego p.615). This account is combined with a description of Peru by Pedro de Madriga, an account of an English expedition to Guyana in 1596 (Kort-journael, gedaen naer het gout-rijck coninckrijck Guiana) and a discourse on VOC trade, none of which appeared in previous printings. - A very nice copy with the bookplate of The Cruising Association.Tiele 667; Tiele, Mémoire, p.78; Landwehr, VOC, 250; European Americana II, p.491; Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III,1 p.449.

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.

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 ]

(8),456,(16) pp. First and only Dutch edition. - A sumptuously illustrated account of the two Dutch missions of 1649 and 1661 to the shogun's court. After the expulsion of all foreigners from Japan, the Dutch were allowed to settle on the man-made island of Deshima in the bay of Nagasaki. The Dutch trading center there served not only commercial ends, but it was also Japan's window on the western world. In addition, it provided other countries with an avenue of approach to Japan. Thus, from 1637 to 1854, the Dutch alone were able to retain their trading rights. During this period they were able to exercise their mediating functions for other nations, as they did in preparing the way for America's admiral Perry. 'Some new information along with a lot of old material about Japan became available in 1669 with the publication of Montanus' Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen. Ostensibly a description of several VOC embassies to the shogun's court after 1640, it is in fact an encyclopedia of things Japanese' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.488).

Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - The first successful Dutch trading voyage to the East Indies. The fleet sent out from Amsterdam by the successor of the company that financed De Houtman's venture, now called the Old East India Company, was a smashing success. Eight ships commanded by Jacob van Neck and Wybrand van Warwijck left Texel on May 1, 1598. Fifteen month later, on July 17, Van Neck returned from Bantam with four of his ships fully laden with pepper. The rest of the fleet, under Van Warwijck and Jacob van Heemskerck, made other stops on Java and then went to Banda, Amboina, and the Moluccas; here they established the three factories which became the foundation for later Dutch controle of the Moluccan spice trade. Van Heemskerck arrived in Amsterdam with two ships on May 19, 1600; Van Warwijck arrived with the remaining two ships at the end of August, 1600. The major contributions made by this account were full descriptions of Banda, Amboina, and the Moluccas.
