The Dutch Down Under: 1606 - 2006.
Peters, Nonja.
ISBN: 9781920694753
University of Western Australia Press (UWAP) Perth, Crawley 2006 
  Hardback large thick quarto, dustjacket (flaps four sides), very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), black & white & sepia (brown-tinted) & colour text-photos, minimal edgewear. Very heavy (2.0 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 422 pp. This detailed history celebrates the first 400 years of relations between Australia and the Netherlands. The relationship started in 1606, when the Dutch vessel Duyfken mapped part of the coast near present day Weipa, Cape York Peninsula. This event led to further maritime encounters, and and traces of early Dutch influence are still found in such Australian place names as Tasmania and Cape Leeuwin. Large numbers of Dutch migrants arrived in Australia as part of the post-war migration from a war-ravaged Europe, and from the former Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). Today Dutch-Australians number 270,000 residents.
