BALDAEUS, Philippus. Naaukeurige beschryvinge van Malabar en Choromandel, der zelver aangrenzende ryken, en het machtige eyland Ceylon. Nevens een omstandige en grondigh doorzochte ontdekking en wederlegginge van de afgoderye der Oost-Indische heydenen. .. Zijnde hier by gevoeght een Malabaarsche spraak-konst. Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius van Waasberge en Johannes van Someren, 1672.3 volumes in 1. Folio. Contemporary blindtooled vellum (1 hinge restored), with modern ties. With title printed in red and black with printer's device, engraved allegorical title-page, coat of arms, 1 (of 2) engraved portrait by A. Blooteling of the authour (missing the portrait of Geraerd Hulst), 3 plates depicting Malabar characters, 34 engraved maps and plates (mostly double-page), and 52 engravings in the text. (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.

London, 1773. - Willem Bolts (ca. 1740-1808) was a Dutch adventurer who entered the English East India Company in Bengal, and got into trouble for private trading in the name of the East India Company. The government of Benares sent him off to England as a prisoner. He sought legal action against them, but ruined himself in the proces. This vigorous exchange of views developed into a bitter controversy and played an important part in fuelling the extensive public debate that was taking place on the subject of the East India Company's operations in India. The French translation was made by Jean Nicolas Demeunier. - Pasted in is a letter in French, dated 1776, dealing with the ceding of Benares by the Rajah to the English East India Company.Cox I, p.299; Chadenat 2791.

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.

Cottton had been appointed ambassador to Persia as a result of the return of Robert Sherley in 1623. The embassy had produced two rival ambassadors, Sherley and Nagd Ali Beg (Nogdi Ali Beg), each of whom had denounced the other as an imposter. James I therefore decided to send Cotton as his ambassador to Persia to clarify these matters, accompanied by the two interested parties, Sherley and Ali Beg. Thomas Herbert was to accompany the mission. Sailing via the Cape of Good Hope, Madagascar and Goa, the party landed at Surat on 27.11.27. There Ali Beg deliberately took on overdose of opium and killed himself .. Herbert sailed on 18.12.27 for Persia and landed at Gombroon .. they continued to Teheran, and then to Qazvin where both Robert Sherley and Cotton died of dysentery. Herbert, however, continued his travels, visiting Lar, Shiraz, Esfahan, Tehran, Qum, Kashan and eventually returning to Gombroon. From there he made his way to Surat (December 1628), and in April 1629 sailed for London, visiting en route Ceylon, the Coromandel coast, Mauritius and St. Helena' (Howgego p.503/504). Herbert 'gives a description of Persian coffee customs which is probably the earliest in English language' (Hünersdorff/Hasenkamp p.686).
