Adina Sommer`s Rare Antique Maps and Contemporary Art
|Philips Baelde or Father Philippus Baldaeus, (1632– 1671), was a Dutch minister. He went to Jaffna during the Dutch period in Ceylon with an invading Dutch force. As the second European after Abraham Rogerius he documented the life, language and culture of Tamil people, living in the north of the island. It is a great historical record, and it was immediately published in Dutch and German (with several beautiful pictures). English translation was published by Ceylon Government Railway.|
