Herinnering aan een reis naar Oost-Indië: reisverslag en aquarellen van Maurits Ver Huell, 1815-1819

Walburg Pers, 2008

736 pp. with cd- rom, ISBN 978-905-7305-68-9



Maurits Ver Huell (1787-1860) left for the East Indies in 1815, where he commanded the frigate Admiral Evertsen. He traveled extensively on Java, and joined missions to Makassar, Banda and to the sultans of Ternate and Tidore. Returning home in 1819 Ver Huell had to abandon his poorly maintained ship in the Indian Ocean, where it subsequently perished with all of his collected naturalia and a collection of drawings. But in 1835/1836 he published the memoirs of his journeys, and made over a hundred watercolors paintings about the Indies. In this new publication the editors describe the life and times of Ver Huell himself, the social changes in the period of 1780 - 1830, and the collection of watercolors paintings (now in the Maritime Museum Rotterdam) is reprinted.
