First edition. Issued by the Netherland Commission for the International Rubber Exhibition, London, 1911, the work provides details of the rubber companies operating in the Dutch East Indies, including capital, directors, the estates held and their location and yield, etc. It is introduced by a preface by Swart and essays by P. van Romburgh on ‘Some Particulars Touching the Suitability of the Netherland East Indies for Rubber Cultivation’ (pp. [VII]-XII) and J.P. van der Stok on ‘The Climate of the Islands in the Netherland Indian Archipelago’ (pp. [XIII]- XVII), and the volume concludes with maps of Indonesia, Java and Sumatra. The work is scarce, and COPAC does not locate the first edition in UK libraries, and only one copy of the second edition, which was published in 1914.
