The archives of the Dutch East India Company VOC and the local institutions in Batavia Jakarta

Brill, Leiden, 2007

572 pp. ISBN 978-900-4163-65-2



The VOC (Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie, the Dutch East India Company) was the largest of the early- modern European trading companies operating in Asia. The VOC records constitute the most complete and extensive source on early-modern world history anywhere and are included in UNESCO´s Memory of the World Register. The long-term co-operation between the National Archives of Indonesia and the Netherlands since 2001 has resulted in this extensive catalogue of the fifteen archival collections of VOC institutions which are kept in Jakarta. The catalogue includes introductions on the VOC in general, the local institutions in Batavia and the custodial history of the records in English, Indonesian and Dutch.




The Corts Foundation
