About This Book

This is a facsimile reissue of the 1798 translation of the account, originally written in French, of the visit on behalf of the Dutch East India Company made to the imperial Court of Peking by André Everard van Braam. Written by van Braam's scribe, this second part of the journal tells of the Summer Palace (destroyed in 1860) and gives detailed descriptions of the scenery, occupations and customs of the people in the areas they travelled through. The many art works acquired by van Braam are listed.
