Dordrecht, Amsterdam, J. van Braam, G. onder de Linden, 1724-1726. Reprint. Franeker, 2002-2004. 5 volumes in 8. Folio. Artificial leather. With 241 portraits, maps, plates and illustrations. One of the most extensive works on the history of the Far East (including Persia), which never can be superseded as many of the documents of which the author made use, do not longer exist.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 VOC was active: Indonesia, with large parts on Batavia and the Moluccas, Persia, Malacca, Ceylon, India, Cape of Good Hope, Japan, China and Formosa, etc.. The work is profusely illustrated with numerous 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 For his descriptions of the natural history of Amboyna Valentijn used i.a. the unpublished 'Amboinsch Dierboek' by the famous naturalist Rumphius, of which the original manuscript has been lost.

VERHOEFF, Pieter Willemsz. Journael ende verhael van alle het gene dat ghesien ende voor-ghevallen is op de reyse, gedaen door .. Pieter Willemsz. Verhoeven, admirael generael over 13 schepen, gaende naer de Oost-Indien, China, Philipines, ende byleggende rijcken, in den jare 1607 ende volgende. (Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern boards. With plate depicting the fortress on Banda. 214 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - Pieter Willemszoon Verhoeff (ca. 1573 - 1609) commanded one of the last voyages of the first phase of Dutch occupation in the East Indies. His instructions, in addition to destroying as much Iberian shipping as possible, were to drive the Spanish and Portuguese out of the Moluccas (Howgego p. 1065-1066). He died during an expedition to the Banda Islands in 1609, where he and many of his crew were ambushed and murdered by locals while negotiating with them for the Dutch East India Company (VOC). This account of Verhoeff's voyages is a composite piece. It starts with the journal by the chief merchant Johan de Moelre and continued, after he was killed, by the fleet's treasurer Jacques Le Febure. Followed by extracts from the journal of Reynier Dirckszoon, the pilot aboard one of the ships which sailed to Japan, and the journal of Jacob Specx and Pieter Segerszoon also on Japan. This piece is followed by a report by Samuel Bloemaert about trade and negotiations on Borneo and Appolonius Schotte's accounts of the Moluccas and Gillis Seys report of 1627 on Amboina. These materials constitute a rich source of information about the expansion of Dutch power in the Moluccas, the negotiations with the inlanders, the war with the Spaniards, the details of trade, and the daily life of the Dutch stationed there. This account of Verhoeff's voyage was never separately reprinted during the 17th century (Lach & Van Kley, III, p.471-472). - (Age-browned; missing pp.165-166 but added in photocopy).Landwehr, VOC, 250.
