A Visit to Manila and Its Environs
This book is the first English translation of Jacob Adolf Bruno Wiselius's account of his travel to the Philippines, where he visited Manila and the neighboring Laguna province in 1875. A Controller with the Dutch Colonial Administration on Java, Wiselius was interested in the way Spain managed its colony and wanted to know what the Dutch could learn from Spanish practices. This translation by Geert Van Der Linden is accompanied by a biographical essay of Wiselius by Otto Van Den Muijzenberg.
