François Valentijn Antara etika dan estetika

R.Z. Leirissa

Abstract


A controversial book on the history of the VOC in the seventeenth century was
written by François Valentijn, a preacher in the payroll of the Dutch East India
Company (VOC). The book (eight volumes), published in 1724-1726, was known
by its popular title Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indiën. Most of the materials in the book
were pirated from other sources without acknowledging their authors as is
the proper practice of historiography. But as to its style, a number of Dutch
writers appreciated its esthetic qualities. Beside that, the book is indeed useful
to historians today because some of the materials pirated in the book have now
been lost forever.

Keywords
