Smits, Batavia-Noordwijk. - Interesting account based on information and reports collected by De Stuers (1788-1861) when he was military commandant and resident of Padang between 1824 and 1829. He left the colony after a conflict with the governor-general about the expansion of authority in Sumatra. 'Veth published the book because it clarified a little-known episode in colonial history. In Veth's view, it underscored the need for the Netherlands to concern itself more actively with the administration of the Outer Islands. In an annotated introduction running to over a hundred pages Veth reviewed the history of Dutch military action on Sumatra' (Van der Velde, P.J. Veth, p. 119). The fine plates are after drawings by the author. - Age-browned otherwise fine.Tiele 1066; Cat. NHSM I, p.512; Cat.
