Description:

Valentyn’s important chart of Sri Lanka (Ceylon) from the most important record of the Dutch spice trade in Asia.

Valentyn had studied theology and travelled twice to the East Indies in the employ of the Dutch East India Company (V.O.C), 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 V.O.C. in the East, Valentyn was given privileged access to the secret archives of the company, enabling him to provide detailed information from primary sources such as log books of previous Dutch voyages to the East.

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.
