Featured Catalogue | The Dutch abroad
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are proud to present our latest catalogue, The Dutch abroad : Rare books from the collection of Nicholas Ingleton.
You can download the catalogue here
or visit the category The Dutch abroad on our website
We will be exhibiting these books at the 36th Amsterdam International Antiquarian Book & Map Fair, 30 September – 1 October 2017, to be held at the Marriott Hotel. If you will be in Amsterdam during this time, we’d love to see you – please do stop by and say hello (Stand 45).
The undoubted star of the catalogue is a copy of the first edition of Pelsaert’s account of the wreck of the Batavia (Amsterdam, 1647), a legendary rarity which is the first book on Australia and which also contains the first European images of Australia. Other highlights include a scarcely recorded book printed by the Dutch on Dejima, the trading post in Nagasaki harbour, in 1862 (a guide to medicine written for the Imperial Japanese Medical School); the first edition of the first full account of Roggeveen’s voyage (Dordrecht, 1728); and an early Latin edition of Schouten’s voyage account (Amsterdam, 1619).
