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.
