About this Item: Amsterdam, P.N. van Kampen, 1849-51.Contemporary half morocco, spine gilt. With folding Arabian inscription, 2 folding lithographed maps, and 17 lithographed plates (1 folding and 6 tinted). XII,227; XII,227,(1) pp. First edition; Volume III, part 1 (1854) on Bali is missing as always. - Wolter Robert Baron van Hoëvell (1812-1879) was a minister of the church in Batavia. In 1847, about a year before his departure for the Netherlands, he made a trip which he reported on as Journey through Java, Madura, and Bali. He had started writing it while still in the Indies when his problems with its government were reached a critical stage. This explains the vehement tone of its first part. He forwarded the manuscript to P.J. Veth, an expert on the Indies in Holland. By the time part one was published, Van Hoëvell himself had already returned to Holland. There he continued writing about his trip. The work was first to consist of two, then three volumes. As it turns out, he only wrote two, which appeared respectively in 1849 and 1851. The account concerning his trip to Bali began to appear in 1854 but was never completed. Paul van't Veer is right in saying in a recent essay about Van Hoëvell that this travelogue is one of the best to have come out of the Indies. (Nieuwenhuys, Mirror of the Indies, p.65).Tiele 490; not in Cat. NHSM; Bastin-Brommer N404; Landwehr, Coloured plates, 312; Cat. KITLV p.11. Seller Inventory # 22615
