SCHOUTEN, Joost. Beschrijvinge van de regeeringe, macht, religie, costuymen, traffijcquen, ende andere remercquable saecken, des coninghrijcks Siam. Gestelt inden jaere 1636 door Joost Schouten, directeur weghens de geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie aldaer. (Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. (15) pp. (text set in two columns). Etracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - This was the first general account of Siam published in the seventeenth century; as such it was widely distributed and generally consulted as a source by later writers. Designed as a report to the VOC, Schouten's description is that of a capable and devoted servant of the Company. It is nonetheless an incisive discourse in which the author truthfully records and sympathetically comments on what he observed during eight years of service in Siam (Lach & Van Kley, Asia in the making of Europe, III,3, p.1174).Landwehr, VOC, 250; Cordier, B.J., col. 339.
