(56) 908 pp. First published in 1709; with old owner's name on first fly-leaf P. Reinhoud Bruinisse. - . - Eighteen editions were published between 1709-1902. Only few copies exist of each of the editions, all of them are rare, which means that this book was very popular and much used. It was part of the equipment of most ships. On Sundays, the skipper read from this for the foundation and sanctification of Sunday. Van Leeuwarden (1648-1730) was not a clergyman but probably an artisan. Included are prayers for the East India Company, and the whalers and hering fishers. The fine engraved title-page is made after Jan Luyken, also used for the first edition of 1709.
