Description

In this richly illustrated edition, researcher and India specialist Bauke van der Pol presents, for the first time, a comprehensive compendium of VOC heritage in India. In his book he guides the reader through settlements, country houses, warehouses, trading posts and splendid cemeteries featuring unique sepulchral monuments. By referring to old pictures and contemporary photographs he shows what the settlements looked like and what can still be found of them in the India of today. He elaborates on the background to how the Dutch landed in the various regions of India and he explains the details of their relationships with the Indian maharajas and other rulers. Furthermore, he describes the precious commodities that tempted the Dutch to embark on such exotic adventures and he shows how todays Indians relate with the traces that these foreigners left behind in their country.
