Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: 17.. Black. Central fold with two significant central tears, somewhat repaired and not affecting the readability of this interesting large-format document. Originally part of a book. It shows the structure and organisation of the Dutch East India Company. Illustratedto show the different chambers and councils at work. List of territories owned and trading offices established. It talks of the capital, profitability, personnel, lines of responsibility, the pleasures of Batavia and very much else. Text in French. A truly interesting and attractive document of what is today seen as the world's first multinational corporation (created 1602) and the first company to issue stock. Hence, the 'VOC' or Dutch East India Co. is a strongly searched-for theme these days, with unfortunately far too little scripophily available to satisfy collector needs.
