Updated edition, first published in 1676, of Wouter Schouten's voyage to the Dutch East Indies. Schouten traveled as a surgeon to the Dutch East Indies in the 1650s-1660s. "Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions." - Howgego S66. "As a physician, Schouten had a more than ordinary interest in flora and fauna and in hygiene and living conditions" (Lach, Asia in the Making of Europe, v. III, p.955.
