Reizen en Ontdekkingstogten van Abel Jansz Tasman, van Lutkegast
Groningen: A.L. Scholtens, 1849. Small slim octavo, three plates, a few spots but mostly excellent; in the original blue printed stiff wrappers a little discoloured, neatly rebacked to match. Tasman for young readers. Uncommon edition of the journals of Abel Tasman, here condensed and edited for use by younger readers. This copy is well preserved in the original printed wrappers and contains three skilfully printed lithographic plates. These depict Amsterdam Island, and also the first contact between Europeans and the Maori at "De Moordenaars-Baii" (Murderer's Bay, now renamed Golden Bay located at the northwest point of the South Island). Of special interest given Tasman's early Australian landfall is the bucolic scene of Tasmanian Aborigines, here depicted in a style reminiscent of the work of nineteenth-century French voyage illustrators such as Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and Louis de Sainson.
