69/3009 Bindings VOC  Longgrained brown morocco binding richly decorated with silver VOC binding ornaments 69/3009 Bindings VOC Longgrained brown morocco binding richly decorated with silver VOC binding ornaments
69/3009 [Bindings. VOC]. Longgrained brown morocco binding richly decorated with silver VOC binding ornaments: silver clasps and catches, silver plate on frontcover and backcover, silver stylus (to be stuck through the four silver catches), the clasps finely decorated with crowned "VOCE" [= VOC Enkhuizen] monogram and finely decorated with an East Indiaman flying the VOC flag, 8vo. - ON: a notebook with early 20th cent. paper and annots. in pen and ink.

- Board edges and spine rubbed; upper joint splitting near spine-ends. Otherwise fine.

= A very rare binding with silver VOC decorations with the monogram of the Enkhuizen chamber, with a stylus functioning as catch as well as pen. The silver catches bear the silver hallmark showing the coat of arms of Amsterdam and a year mark Y (1783) and an unidentified silversmith mark, but appears to be the symbol Sigma. Cf. Landwehr, VOC p.XXVII and XXIX (with illustration [w. almost identical decorations]): "Few VOC stamped bindings bearing the initials of the less important chambers, such as Delft and Rotterdam, have come to light. (...) Actually the two chambers jointly commissioned notebooks and/ or almanacs on a yearly basis from the same silversmith. Elegantly bound in sealskin, they were provided with a silverplate of an East Indiaman surrounded by scrollwork on the front and backcovers (...). Unfortunately, no specimens from the other chambers have been found". The paper bookblock is late 19th/ early 20th century (watermark H.P. Charro & zonen) and with early 20th century annotations. Perhaps the silver decorations were re-used on a later binding.

Rare second edition of this very popular itinerary, often reprinted up to the nineteenth century. The voyage of Bontekoe became a byword for a voyage full of adversities. The ship caught fire after passing Madagascar and exploded when the flames reached the powder-room. The survivors continued their voyage in a shallop and after much suffering and many adventures they were rescued in Straits Sunda by a Dutch fleet under F. Houtman. The rest of the journal narrates Bontekoe's further experiences in Indonesia and China until his safe arrival in his hometown Hoorn. "Bontekoe's Journal (...) became one of the most popular books of its genre. Written in a simple, earthy language, it ran to thirty editions in the following fifty years and was translated into nearly every European language. At one time it was reckoned to be out-selling the New Testament." (Howgego). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXIX.

Hill 163: "Bougainville's accounts of Pacific Islanders in this work echoed Jean Jacques Rousseau's concepts of the "noble savage", and inspired Denis Diderot to write his denunciation of European contact with indigenous peoples."
