Description :An early issue of this important book by Johann Wolfgang Heydt's describing the Dutch factories, settlements and stations at the hands of the Dutch East India Company in Africa and Asia. Illustrated with two engraved titles and 85 (of 115) engraved plates (including a few maps), by Seeligmann, Hoffer, Puscher and Berndt after Heydt.
Only the first part with 2 title pages, 10 pp introduction and pages 1 - 255, illustrated with 85 engraved plates and maps of Jakarta and Colombo.

The introduction has an extra page "Nach Standes Gebühr geehrter Leser!", by Johann Christian Wibel, dated 10Juni. 1744 and is bound after the usual page "Nach Standes Gebühr geehrter Leser!" by Philippus Angelus Sipman 6 Augustus 1744.

The book is the first illustrated book on ­Batavia written by an ­eyewitness who lived there between 1737 and 1740. J.W. Heydt was a precise­drawer and surveyor. He produced 41 engravings of different places in and around Batavia on order of Governor-General Valckenier. For himself Heydt always made another engraving, which he published together with precise descriptions after his return to Germany.
Batavia is presented in lavish and detailed engravings of grand buildings, churches, canals and warehouses, but very few inhabitants are portrayed.
