"This book gives verbatim Dutch text and English translations of the actual journals kept by the two slave traders on the Company's slaver Leijdsman. It is of importance to all who have an interest in the history of the slave trade and the Cape of Good Hope, while the original Dutch journals will be of great interest to the linguist."
