WARWIJCK, Wybarnd & Sebald de WEERT. Historische verhael/ vande reyse gedaen inde Oost-Indien, met 15 schepen voor reeckeninghe vande Vereenichde Gheoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie, onder het beleydt van ... Wybrandt van Waerwijck, als admirael/ ende Sebaldt de Weert, als vice-admirael. Wt de Nederlanden ghevaeren in den jare 1602. (Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. (All 6 plates missing). 88 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - In 1602, consequent to the formation of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), Van Warwijck was commissioned to command a fleet of 15 vessels, under instructions from the VOC to seek out reliable spice markets and find a suitable location for a permanent headquarters in the East. It was prepared and financed by pre-VOC entrepreneurs as part of the transition to VOC monopoly (Howgego p.1093). Admiral Wybrand van Warwijck and Vice-Admiral Sebald de Weert visited Bantam, Ceylon, Acheh, Johore, Patani and the Pescadores Islands off the coast of China. Van Warwijck's fleet intensified hostilities with the Portuguese and captured many Portuguese vessels off Ceylon, in the Straits of Malacca, and along the Malay coast. Van Warwijck concluded alliances with the rulers of Johore, Acheh, and Kandy against the Portuguese. He justified his depredations as but proper retaliation for the murder of Van Neck's men at Macao a few years earlier. The Pescadores and the negotiations with the Chinese officials are described in considerable detail in Van Warwijck's account. His negotiations in Acheh, Hahore, and Patani, and De Weerd's in Ceylon, are painted in rich detail. A rather full description of Acheh is included as well. Commelin inserted into the account several ordinances and instructions for the new factory established by Van Warwijck in Bantam - the first Dutch factory in the Indies. There is also a brief description of Makassar despite the fact that no ships from the fleet went there. No other edition of Van Warwijck's voyage exists (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making of Europe, III,1, p.466). Landwehr, VOC, 250. [Boeknr.: 35240 ]
