= De Silva/ Beumer p.461-462; cf. Tiele 433 and Landwehr, VOC 347 (other editions). "Haafner [1755-1809] started his literary activities very late in life. His first travel-book was published in 1806 in Haarlem: Lotgevallen op eene reize van Madras over Tranquebaar naar het eiland Ceilon. (...). The importance of Haafner's eyewitness accounts is that they were done during the decay of the VOC. Terpstra, in his analysis of Haafner's views on colonialism as expressed in his works, comes to the conclusion that Haafner was an anti-colonialist, a man before his time, for his ideas were not to be topical until more than a century had elapsed." (De Silva/ Beumer). Rare title-edition of the re-edition of the Lotgevallen, published in 1826 in Amsterdam.
