French translation of a thorough report and opinions on the present state of the Dutch settlements in the East Indies, containing accounts of their government, administration, navigation, declining trade, military, and possessions. The original Dutch edition (Nederlandsch India, in haaren tegenwoordigen toestand beschouwd) appeared most likely in the same year. Landwehr & Van der Krogt suggest that the two were published simultaneously and may have been printed in Amsterdam.
Wrappers soiled. Very good copy.
Cat. NHSM, p. 507; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 1597; STCN (5 copies); cf. Smith Diehl, pp. 151-52.
