BATIK INDUSTRY AT LASEM, COLONIAL INDONESIA - REPORT- P. DE KAT ANGELINO, Rapport van de Commissie tot nader onderzoek der Arbeidstoestanden in de Batikkerijen te LASEM/Verslag over de Arbeidstoestanden in de Batikkerijen te LASEM.
[Batavia], [De commissie van onderzoek], 12 september, 1928 2 vols. sm. slim 4°.orig.limp brown and black cloth, with title-labels on upper wraps. Together in a modern cloth box. 131, ,22, [26]; 49, [14]pp. of TYPOSCRIPT, Carbon-copy, typed in double-space, on India paper. With 4 original photographs tipped-in in vol. I. Tables in text and on separate leaves, list of Batik-workshops at Lasem, 1 very large fold. table at end of volume I.
The public version, of the report on labour-conditions in the Batik-Industry at Lasem (Java) was published in 3 vols. in 1930-1931. However, these 2 typo-scripts of which the "Verslag"bears the notice "Zeer Geheim" (Top-secret) and the "Rapport"(report) deviate, already at first glance, considerably from the official publication. The top-secret "Verslag"contains a.o. the names of civil-servants and police-constables of poor reputation among the mainly [female] labourers in the Industry. The findings of the commission, installed by the Inspector-general of the colonial dutch labour inspection were so appalable that the commission decided to submit this secret report (a diary) tot the Batavia colonial Administration. Northing of their findings, covering rakecteering, forced prostitution of female labourers, loan-sharking, brutalities,&c... have been published. Both the "Report"and the "Verslag" call for further scientific research, as they draw a completely different picture of the labour-conditions as described in the printed and published version by P. De Kat Angelino (former labour-inspector in colonial Indonesia). Even a quick glance to both reports learn that the official reports need a complete revision after scientific research. Very well preserved and in near fine condition. Rarissime.
