- Collection of 15 titles from Dutch East Indian literature, this time including a rare tendentious novel by a great-nephew of Multatuli and a number of equally rare East Indian plays:

1. E.F.E. Douwes Dekker (Redacteur aan het Bataviaansch Nieuwsblad):: Het boek van Siman den Javaan. Een roman van rijst, dividend en menschelijkheid - Amersfoort, F.M. Wink, 1908. [VIII], 380 pp. - Original decorated cloth.* Curious and rare tendentious novel written by E.F.E. Douwes Dekker, a great-nephew of Multatuli. As in the Max Havelaar, this is about the discrimination of the ordinary Javanese, albeit less beautifully worded than in the MH. Rob Nieuwenhuys characterised this great-nephew as “a bundle of contradictions”, a romantic revolutionary, a fierce nationalist, very anti-Dutch and filled with hatred against the white rulers. He was an ‘Indo boy’, born in Pasuruan from a Javanese mother. He was proud of the Javanese blood that ran through his veins, he said, and he did not refrain from emphasising it. As an Indo-European, he did not opt, like most, for social and cultural equality with the Europeans, but for assimilation with the Indonesian population. He became one of the front men of the nationalistic movement from its very beginning. (Oost-Indische Spiegel)
