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 ]

One of the most extensive works on the history of the Far East (including Persia), which never can be superseded as many of the documents of which the author made use, do not longer exist.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.

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 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). 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). - Missing pp.165-166 but added in photocopy).Landwehr, VOC, 250.
