Models of Dutch East-Indiamen, 1716 to 1725

By R. C. Anderson, published May 1932


Since writing in the January 1930 MM, Anderson has discovered another model of a Dutch East-Indiaman, which led him to re-examine the previously researched models. The Dutch East India Company rated their ships as either 160, 145 or 130 feet but these lengths are confusing due to the use of either ‘Amsterdam’ or ‘Rhineland’ feet, which are at variance with their English equivalent. However, the models representing specific ships appear to be relatively accurate and from his research Anderson has provided a significant amount of detail of both the models and the actual East-Indiamen.
