Amsterdam, P.N. van Kampen, 1849-50.2 volumes. Original printed boards (spines rep.). With 2 folding maps and 14 handcoloured or tinted lithographed plates by C.W. Mieling after the author (some plates in vol. II partly waterstained). CX,240; (2),264 pp.* First edition; reviewer's copy of the 'Algemeen Letterlievend Maandschrift, 1850, with some manuscript notes. - Interesting account based on information and reports collected by De Stuers (1788-1861) when he was military commandant and resident of Padang between 1824 and 1829. He left the colony after a conflict with the governor-general about the expansion of authority in Sumatra. 'Veth published the book because it clarified a little-known episode in colonial history. In Veth's view, it underscored the need for the Netherlands to concern itself more actively with the administration of the Outer Islands. In an annotated introduction running to over a hundred pages Veth reviewed the history of Dutch military action on Sumatra' (Van der Velde, P.J. Veth, p. 119). The fine plates are after drawings by the author. Tiele 1066; Cat. NHSM I, p.512; Cat. KITLV p.18; Bastin-Brommer N 406; Landwehr, Coloured plates, 449.
