Biography:

Francois Valentyn (1656-1727)

Valentyn studied theology and travelled twice to the East Indies in the
employ of the VOC, firstly as a Calvinist minister on the spice island
of Amboina (1686-1694) and then to Java (1706) and again Amboina
(1707-1713). In the preparation of his historical account of the VOC in
the East, Valentyn was given privileged access to the secret archives of
the company, enabling him to provide detailed information on previous
Dutch voyages to the Indies, including those of Abel Tasman.
