Chapter Summary

The quantity of literature about the history of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) is very large and continues to grow. This chapter presents the bibliography, in no way pretends to be complete. The intention of this survey is two-fold: (i) to provide a guide for further study in the various areas of the history of the Company by naming reference works, such as inventories of archives or bibliographies; (ii) to give an insight into the recent historiography. The literature has been divided into three main categories and a number of sub-categories. The division is as follows: A: reference works: (i) archives, (ii) bibliographies, (iii) maps, (iv) others; B: source publications; C: history of the VOC. The website gives a survey of the archives of the VOC. A great number of inventories are already accessible via this website and their number will increase in future.

Keywords: Dutch East India Company; literature; Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC)
