Description

A fascinating map of part of the Moluccas, published by Valentijn.

Francois Valentijn was an prominent historian of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) who is best known for Oud en Nieuw Oost Indien, which was published by Joannes van Braam and Gerard onder de Linden. He twice traveled to the East Indies and served as Calvinist minister to Ambon between 1686 and 1694.

In preparing this monumental work, he was given privileged access to the previously secret archives of the VOC, containing transcripts and copies of important earlier Dutch voyages.
